It might seem tough but is not impossible.

  1. Leave your bad experiences and rejections at the door. Don’t let any negative energy sum up and do not bring up past rejections in your interviews. Leave your past in the past.
  2. Don’t set yourself up for a fall by using the interview process to seek professional validation. Bad times come and go, they do not stay. Accept that rejection is part of the job search process.
  3. Rejection doesn’t means that your qualifications and personality are anything less than spectacular. Employers weigh many considerations when recruiting staff – many of these factors are beyond your control. Keep it in perspective; their decision doesn’t necessarily reflect on you.
  4. It’s hard to ask for an honest and objective review of your interview performance – especially from someone you may have only met once. But in order to do better next time, you need to know if there are areas you need to improve. Ask the people who interviewed you for direct and honest feedback.

Fighting rejection is totally a mind game and how well you control your emotions during hard times.
