Rejections are rough! The wounds run deep especially when a dream is involved. However, it is important that you stay strong during this season.
Hereunder are 5 helpful to deal with the rejection from your dream job.
This is the best place to be, talking with the Father. Sit at his feet. Cry if you need to and let all your emotions out. His word said that he is near the broken hearted so let him know exactly how you feel.
In moments of disappointments there are 2 scriptures that I love to cling to.
The Book of Proverbs chp 3: 5-6 states trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.
Another scripture is Romans chp 8: 28 states and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.
Trust these also provide encouragement to you during this season.
Ask for Feedback
Some companies are willing to provide feedback on what you did well during the interview process and areas that were weak. If you can get feedback embrace it. Write the pointers down and put a system to work on them for your next interview.
Negative feedback can be at times some of the most impactful information that you can receive. Therefore, though it may be a tough pill to swallow, write them down. You can tackle them at a later date once you are in better spirits.
Keep Your Goals and Dreams Top of Mind
Not because you did not land your dream role means that your dream cannot come through. Keep your goal and dream foremost in your mind.
If you are someone who writes your goals down in a list format, then go to your list and review them. Don’t take this job rejection as a rejection from your goals and dreams.
Consider Alternative Paths
A closed door does not mean that every door is closed. Explore other opportunities where you can still accomplish your dreams. Enlist the advice of a mentor or someone who knows your field very well.
Maybe there are opportunities that you are unaware of due to your lack of expertise. So dig your heels in and do some research.
Continue to Job Search
It is important not to let one close door discourage you from opening other doors. Continue to job search using the feedback that you have gained.
If you feel like taking a little break for a while then do so. However, don’t let the break be too long. Get back up as quickly as you can and continue job searching.
A quotation by S J Peterson sums up how to deal with rejection from your dream job perfectly. It states carefully laid plans aren’t always the best. Sometimes plan B is the real dream come true. Trust this post provides some support to you as you navigate this challenging season.
