Another Rejection Letter

9 posts in this topic

Got another rejection letter today for a potential job. This job i really thought had potential. Even though it was only part time it would be a move in the right direction. Sometimes i don't know why I bother anymore. It doesn't get any easier.

just think about this as one more step towards the job of your dreams! We all know that we will receive rejections before getting a job, so think about this as one step closer to that YES. I know it hurts, but the right job will come around if you persist long enough. Good luck

Hi, guitarfan. You are right, it doesn't get any easier, but just the fact that you keep trying says so much about your character. You have depression, and have had trouble finding that "right job" (me, too, still looking after 2 years), keep getting rejections, and yet still have the strength to go on. The hardest part is to hope, and then suffer the disappointment, which hurts my feelings and makes me feel so personally unwanted.

What everyone tells me, though, and I now believe, is this: there are so many people looking for jobs, and there are so few good ones out there, it's just a numbers game as to whether a person gets hired. That's not even counting those positions that we are "allowed" to apply for, but that they already have someone in mind to hire. Keep trying, you have what it takes, and the job will come. I am working two part-time, temporary jobs right now, and I am interviewing for one of them for permanent part-time this week, and really think it's the right job for me, but all I can do is my best.

After each rejection, I take a little while to "get over" the bad feelings, then I try hard not to take it personally. Then, I am able to feel less depressed about it so I can start to look again. So, take a little time for yourself, metaphorically lick your wounds, and then start again? I wish you success.

I hope soon you can look back on this day and see that all the rejection letters were a blessing that allowed you to get the best job in the world. I have seen this exact thing in my family. Take care until then!

At least you got an acknowledgement. I send out resumes into the ether and hear nothing. Week after week after week. It becomes difficult to muster the will to keep trying to bang your head against that wall, but to do nothing also means nothing. At least trying might result in something.

Hey,

I know how you feel, believe me. Every time that I received a thanks but no thanks letter, it threw me for a world wind of emotions. One time, I got three rejection letters in one day. I tried really hard to stay positive but it was wearing me down. I kept telling myself next time; the next one is going to be mine. Here I am, still waiting. I used to internalize the rejection but after many months of therapy, I know that there are thousands of other people just like me and you. Like someone said earlier, it sure is a numbers game; I just want to know when will my time come.

So...I've taken a hiatus. Its been about two months since my last interview; my last job application. I know that I'm being counterproductive but right now, I don't care. It feels good not to be waiting for someone else to see the "good" in me.

I needed to take time out for my restoration because I was regressing fast.

This is not an easy journey. Sometimes you have to stop and take a breather in order to keep moving forward. Stay focused on your goals and manage your patience; you will prevail. Good Luck.
