Prevailing in the Face of Job-Seeking Rejection

January 17th, 2017

If you’ve been applying for jobs without success, it’s easy to get discouraged and want to give up. Looking for jobs is hard both from a financial perspective and an emotional perspective. However, it’s important to stay positive and keep the following tips in mind to ensure that you end your search with the job of your choice.

Learn from Each Interview.

No matter how bad it may seem, each interview is a learning opportunity. For example, you may have cut the interviewer off in one interview and not realized it until after you had already finished. The way in which you can learn from each interview is to immediately take notes so you can reflect upon them at a later time.

Adjust Your Approach.

If you’re going to many interviews or sending out many e-mails but nothing is sticking, you need to adjust your approach. This could mean editing your resume, cover letter, or interview attire. If you need help figuring out what to adjust, ask a trusted friend who can look over all your job-seeking materials.

Don’t Settle.

When you finally do receive an interview or a job offer, don’t settle just because that’s the first one you’ve received in a while. Make sure you still take the necessary steps of assessing whether or not that job is a good fit for you, your skill-sets, and your educational background.
