Hello FGBers! I need to let off some steam...
I know it's not personal, but it's hard to separate that. I'm a fairly new attorney (I'm less than five years out of law school, which is a second career for me) and always saw myself working for a nonprofit or a government agency. Over the summer (just before a fellowship ended), I was getting multiple interviews (though never made it to the 'you're hired!' stage). Having no offers after my fellowship ended, and still wanting to do the same type of work, I struck out on my own three months ago. I'm still applying for jobs, but have not gotten a single interview from any potential employers. It's so frustrating to have even more experience in my field and have hiring managers show less interest.
How are others dealing with these frustrations? I'd appreciate any tips on maintaining a positive self image in the face of rejection (particularly during COVID). Thanks for reading!
