Rejection in the job search process
I went on two rounds of an interview for a position I really really wanted. I had interviewed at the same place years ago and was passed over for someone with more experience. Years later, I’ve been passed over again after two rounds of interviews. They insisted it was simply because they could only hire 1 person and the other candidate was a better fit. I’m trying not to let it get me down but it’s hard not to feel rejected. I am also trying to separate that from my desperation to get out of my current horribly toxic environment. Anyway, although I am feeling very despondent and definitely cried in the bathroom... I’m trying not to let this shake my confidence or deter me from continuing my job search. Any tips for getting over rejection in the job search?
