Sometimes, They choose another candidate…KEEP GOING!

In your career process, you go through the necessary steps of applying for jobs, getting called or email about the interview #1, then interview #2…then you wait…..and wait…..and wait….only to get the email or the call that they went with another candidate.

It happens to all job seekers and it’s part of the job search process. Not every job you #interview for belongs to you. This is the reason I encourage all of you to treat your job search efforts like entrepreneurs treat their lead generation process….just go through the numbers. Don’t take it personal, it is truly just business.

With the numbers game #mindset…you will have so many applications submitted, interviews being setup to attend, you will not have time to focus on the job you didn’t get. Just keep going and run through the number until you get the career opportunity you truly want.
