. Today, I want to talk about job search rejection.
Job searching can be plagued with rejection. Fear can keep you from pursuing new opportunities. At CareerPharm, we often hear from pharmacy employers who are desperate to find seasoned pharmacists in all practice areas –
, the list goes on. Fear of rejection is one of the things that keep passive seekers from pursuing these opportunities. Fear that you’re not good enough, fear of interviewing, and fear that all of the work required in the job search process is just not worth it. And, believe it or not, many people who are considering career changes don’t pursue them because of this.
Unless you want to remain unemployed or in a job that is unfulfilling you need to learn how to get over the fear of rejection, take some risks and pursue opportunities.
Here are a few tips to help you through it.
Know Your Self Worth
Take some time to review your accomplishments and build self confidence. Part of the job search process is selling yourself and the best way to do that is to really "
get to know you
". Study your accomplishments and then learn how to talk about yourself in a way that reveals your self worth without appearing arrogant.
Know that it Will Work Out
The job search process is daunting. If you’re unemployed it can be downright depressing and if you’re currently employed it’s extra work tacked on to an already busy schedule. Take a step back and assess your process. If you’re taking all of the correct steps then acknowledge the work you’re putting into your search and know that it does work out in the end. It just takes time.
Things Happen for a Reason
Along the same lines, always remember that things do happen for a reason. If you don’t get a job you think you were perfect for, it’s probably because it wasn’t meant to be.
Calm your Nerves and Take Action
Don’t walk around with a nervous stomach about your job search. Take a deep breath every day (multiple times, actually) and make a list of the action items you’ve accomplished. If you’ve done all you can, then just relax. If you haven’t, then start working on that list.
Sometimes the job search is a numbers game and when the time is right, the perfect job will find you. Using the tips above can help you get through the tough times. If you’re looking for a new way to search for jobs that may ease some of the fear of rejection, visit our website to learn about the
