So a big mistake people make is automatically assuming that they didn’t get the job because there was something wrong specifically with them… this is a big mistake to assume this because it then hurts your chances in your next job interview at showing up confidently.
I understand why you might believe that you were the reason you didn’t get hired, it’s only human nature to assume you did or said something wrong…
But let me ask you, is every time someone gets rejected a personal rejection against them?
NO, it’s not actually and most of the time it has nothing to do with them! And believing that it’s you is hurting your confidence and not serving you…
There could be many reasons and many things happening behind the scenes that you don’t know about.. That have nothing to do with you!
The most common one being that they decided to hire someone internally and aren’t hiring anyone from outside the company (so even if you were the best candidate they weren’t hiring anyone because they already had someone inside the company that they were moving.)
“Focusing solely on the fact that you didn’t get hired and making it mean something personal about you could be a big mistake, because what you may not even realize is… that even the perfect greatest candidate may not have gotten hired in this particular situation”
Just because you don’t get the first or second job you interview for it doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you, and seeing it that way is only going to take you down into a spiral of negative thoughts about yourself which will hurt your chances in your next interview.
So let me ask you, do you really want to keep spending time Feeling sorry for yourself because you didn’t get hired?
Do you want to move onto the next opportunity, because dwelling on one that didn’t work out isn’t doing you any good?
