A few weeks ago I found out I didn't get a job I had recently interviewed for. I literally cried for like 10 minutes because I honestly thought I had it in the bag. Not because i was being over confident but I honestly thought I nailed the interview, and known and worked for two of the interviewers for years. So after I got my tears of disappointment out I got caught up in thinking maybe I did mess up in one of the interviews and that's why I didn't get it. Then after my little NECESSARY cry sesh I planned on how I was going to move forward because yea life goes on,
I later found out why I didn't get the job and was slightly defeated all over again. It wasn't because i messed up, or wasn't qualified but it was literally me. They mentioned how highly they thought of me and various other accolades and how good I would be in the position, but it wasn't enough. Once again I didn't get a position I wanted because I'm "too good or overqualified" in the past its been my master degree that made me overqualified this time it was simply that they thought so highly of me, that I'm something like a superstar. *insert facepalm emoji here* I'm so tired of hearing the you're so awesome, so amazing, you'd be great but no. Or people deciding that that how they perceive me and what they believe I should be doing or what I want to be doing isn't what I just told you I want to do! I'm frustrated because I mean you aren't God and its totally not your choice to make decisions for based on what you don't actually know. It also almost sounds like an excuse and a bad one at that.
Thankfully, I do believe that everything happens for a reason though. For some reason that's just not where I'm supposed to be at and that reason will show itself in some other opportunity.
Have you guys had to deal with any rejection lately? How'd you deal with it? Have you ever get the you're some awesome you're so great but isssa NO speech? Id love to hear about it.
