Rejection Got You Down in the Job Search?
REJECTION IN THE JOB SEARCH
GOT YOU DOWN?
It's true, no one wants to be ignored or rejected in any situation. The job search/interview rejection is painful.
If you have been looking for a job for some time, each refusal to hire you makes you feel angry and power- less.
Here are my suggestions to make each rejection less painful.
1. Do lots of interviewing practice, both formal and informal..
2. Apply for a job in many fields.
3. Know who you are, with a job and without.
4. Plan and make specific job goals.
5. Talk to lots of people, send thank you notes too.
6. Make rejection a goal so that you get to the hiring goal faster.
7. Don't take it personally. Play the game.
8. Put exercise into you daily routine.
9. Enjoying love you get from others, makes the rejection easier to take.
10. Show gratitude for what you have.
11. Ask for the job.

Have you ever asked yourself?The answer to this question really hinges on another question: "Do you work for a boss or do you work for yourself?"If you work for a boss the answer must be a resounding NO! You see, you cannot possibly be paid what you are worth because your boss is being paid what you are worth. He or she then pays you at a discounted rate.
One-day you're minding your own business and your boss comes in and says "You're Fired", perhaps he was a bit more polite than that but the end result was the same, you're now out of work!!Now what do you do?Well get over the initial shock and look at the whole experience as a positive, this maybe the break you have been waiting for, no more excuses for not doing what you've always wanted to do, that is too work for yourself and if that's not what you always wanted to do, it is now, because you may not have any other choice.Okay, just got the sack and now suddenly thrust into the world of the entrepreneur! What next? First thing is to think about what you have been doing that actually had someone paying you previously to do it.
