Job rejection


“I’ve gotten everything I have because I was rejected.” – Karen Cheng

A rejection can be pretty soul destroying, but according to Karen Cheng’s “How to Get a Job After You’ve Been Rejected” (thanks Aidan), it can create new even brighter prospects…

  • Rejection spurs you to action – “By rejecting me at first, college admissions taught me the most valuable lesson of my life. It doesn’t matter if you’re told no. Everything’s negotiable.”
  • Rejection might be better for you – “Consider this: what you think is a dream job might not be so great after all. You’re an outsider looking in, and you don’t actually know what it’s like to work there day by day. The company might be able to see something you can’t — that you wouldn’t actually be happy there. Have faith that rejecting you was for the best.”
