When you’re rejected , ask the employer for his reasons, if possible. Do it professionally and calmly ;you are there to learn, not argue. What you find out may give you the insight you need improve you chances  of succeeding the next time. Jane salmons, a senior career adviser, says, “although you may not always like to the negative feedback, remember that purpose of  the call is to help you in the future. So whatever you do , don’t argue. You’ve asked for an opinion, so respect it and use it positively. Also, remember that the company may have a future job for which you would suitable. For example, the first—choice candidate may not be able to take the position, or another suitable vacancy may arise. So don’t burn your bridges.”

How can you deal with rejection and keep on going? Your application was perfect ,and your interview was flawless. You answered every question properly, and you were totally qualified for this job. However, to your shock and amazement, you did not get it—you were rejected! Why does it happen—and , even more important, how are you supposed  to copy with it?

Points to consider

Here are some of the most important element for getting—or not getting—a job:

Inappropriate personal appearance

Inappropriate attitude

Inappropriate credentials

Other common reasons for rejection include sloppy application, an inflexible schedule, or lack of reference.

The answer is still no

Even if you do it right from application through interview, you may still be rejected. Why you don’t have any power over the final decision, you can decide how you are going to respond it . keep three things in mind: get feedback so you can make changes; don’t take the rejection personally; and keep trying.

After my difficult kindergarten year, the school let me enter first grade in the fall, but I was under strict supervision. Not surprisingly, this second chance yielded similarly discouraging results. I remember how I used to high-five my best friends, Bruce and Gary, when our teacher give us low grades. I realize now that my acting out was form boredom, as I had already learned everything they were teaching from my older sister. Although my parents were angry at my behavior, they  knew I could do better.
