So I just got the letter telling me I didn't get the job I applied for. Basically I would have been doing the exact same thing I'm doing now, but I wouldn't have been limited to 1500 hours in a year (gov't part-time bs) and I would have full time benefits etc.
It's just so frustrating, because ever since I graduated in May, I have been trying (4th rejection letter now) to get a better wage. I don't even care that it's not degree-specific. I just want steady income so I can start paying off these horrendous loans. Right now I am on a sinking ship, and I need more income soon or I'll be defaulting my loans before long.
I hate this feeling. I bought a suit I couldn't afford so I would look good for the interview, I prepared questions and answers, I even made sure none of the interviewers had any reservations or concerns... It keeps on feeling like the only job I and my resume are good for is one where the interview is simply a formality and they were going to hire me anyway (because they need me more than I need them).
So, that's how I'm feeling right about now... Any feedback would be appreciated. How have you guys dealt with rejection in the face of adversity?
