I have seen many amazing professionals give up on their job search for months or even years, because of what they perceived was a rejection, be it a lackluster reception of their interest in being promoted, or a job they applied for and didn't get. I spoke recently to someone who took two years to recover from a rejection from a job she applied for and believed it was a dream job for her. In fact, she was indeed a great fit for the role and went all the way to the final interview stage. But at best her chance was 50%, assuming there was another excellent candidate competing for the position.
There is no reason to feel bad about missing out on a job opportunity. Taking too long to try again takes a toll on your career. That’s what I address in this episode, and offer ways to overcome the negative feelings so you can move on with your career.
