To start with, no one likes to be rejected for a job. It hurts to find out that you’ve been turned down. It is very hard to cope with job rejection especially when it happens over and over again. But until you deal with that ordeal, you may never move on. To succeed in finding a dream opportunity and getting hired, it is important to cope with being turned down, otherwise, it is easy to let a momentary setback turn into a major career roadblock.
Get over the rejection by moving on with your job search and sharing frustrations with a supportive person(s) like family members and loved ones. In taking your frustrations off, resist the urge to say anything negative to the hiring manager. It could be that you were over qualified and the employer may be waiting to come back at a later date with a better job offer.
It is important to keep networking and applying until you find opportunities. Receiving positive responses from employers will soften the blow of being rejected and you may find another good offer too.
Go on to analyze your candidacy. Take the time to reflect on your approach to the hiring process to see if there is anything you could improve upon for future opportunities. Review your resume, cover letter, what transpired during the interview, and given what you learned about the job requirements and people involved, ask yourself if you could have done something differently in order to present yourself in a better light and better fit for the job.

Maintaining a connection with an employer could lead to a job down the line. This can be achieved by asking for feedback after you’re turned down. Self-analysis alone won’t paint the whole picture of why you weren’t employed. It doesn’t hurt to ask why you weren’t chosen. Though not typical, sometimes an employer will share feedback about your candidacy. If that’s not the case, and you developed a rapport with anyone at the organization, try approaching them with a request for constructive criticisms. There may have been forces outside your control, example, the company might have decided to promote someone internally. There could be a good reason why you were overlooked. If your skills didn’t meet the requirements, that’s something to keep in mind when applying for a future job. It’s better to know these reasons than to ignore them.
Always follow up with “a thank you” to employer(s) after a job rejection for letting you know their decision and express your gratitude for their time and consideration, and through that connection created, you can ask them to keep you in mind for future positions and opportunities. This is because, sometimes when a new manager comes in and needs to hire, companies keep record of former applicants they liked so they can fill open positions. Creating these connections show employers that you care about the organization or company which can help you get a job there down the road.
To conclude, keep learning and developing.
