Getting to Yes

If you are putting yourself out there – applying for jobs and getting job interviews then you run the risk of rejection. How we cope with this rejection, whether we choose to personalize it or see it as a learning opportunity can often impact our future job search activities.

It is not pleasant to get an interview and leave the room full of hope only to be deflated by a short rejection phone call two days later. But of course, the big picture is our friend here. Richard Bolles in his famous book “What Color is your Parachute” characterized the job search process as a series of “No’s” followed by a “Yes”. Taking ourselves out of action while we cope with a “No” can lengthen the time before we get to Yes.

A post at the Brzaen Careerist website examines how to cope when you don’t get a job offer.
