Don’t give up, no matter how many times you are knocked back. Rejection can be a demoralising and upsetting experience, but don’t let it faze you. Instead ask for feedback, question why you were unsuccessful and use the comments to help you build on your experience for future applications. Hard work and persistence will pay off.
No matter how daunting the task may seem there is always a solution. You just need to take a step back and think about the situation methodically.
Follow your heart, when everything seems stacked against you stop and think about what really matters. Why are you applying for a particular job role or sector? What is it about that role that appeals to you? You should never do a job/career just because someone else says it’s right for you- ultimately it’s your choice.
Always have a plan; and a back up plan. Understand the importance of being able to rely on those around you. When it comes to applying for jobs, you should always start with a clear plan. Focus on sector, frequency and personalising applications.
Always stay true to yourself, don’t forget who you are. When we start applying for job positions it can sometimes seem that the best way to get noticed is to tailor ourselves to what we think other people want from us. However bending the truth will always come back on you, instead be yourself. Confidence will impress your employer.
