I'm sorry that you got turned down. I know it is soul destroying, but keep trying, something has got to give eventually.

There are so many people in that situation right now. I hope something good comes your way soon!

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 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.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen.
