This piece looks at how to positively view rejection in the hiring process and how to use it as a learning opportunity. Most people initially have a negative reaction to hearing no. However, feedback on why the interviewer or company didn't choose you can be a beneficial learning experience. It is important to actively listen to the comments that were given, and look for patterns such as general themes or specific feedback that can help you refine or improve your current process. Furthermore, not taking rejection personally can be difficult but by attempting to look at the feedback objectively, it can help you become stronger and a more confident candidate for the next opportunity.
