I received my second rejection from a final round interview in two weeks. I think its a combination of the competitive job market and the fact that I'm applying to higher strategic roles than I've reached for in the past. I'm trying to do all the things - learn from feedback, improve my communication and data analytics skills, take classes, read advice posts, get out of my head through meditation and exercise - but if I'm being honest - I'm still struggling to deal with the rejection and finding it challenging to deal with the pressure of having to do all that I can to self-improve so that I can come out of this recession without taking a hit to my career progress track. Anyone else out there going through similar feelings and trying to maintain productivity and growth? To add, I had a baby in the middle of all of this so I was already struggling to keep up with my same level of productivity and continue to hit all of the career goals I had in place before motherhood. It's really a struggle out there!
