5 ways highly confident strong people handle rejection


You found the perfect job, wrote a great cover letter and aced the interview But instead of letting the rejection get to you, make these small mindset changes and get back out there. It seems counterintuitive, but the first the first thing you should do after getting a rejection email is send the hiring committee a thank you note. After all, you never know what might happen in the future. There might be problems with their first choice or another position may open up in their department in the next few years.


Sending a thank you note is a way to stay on their radar. Ask if there was something missing in your qualifications or what you could do to present yourself as a better candidate in the future. This kind of information can be especially helpful if this was your first time on the job market.
