DON'T LET REJECTION DEFEAT YOU.

“I’m sorry but we won’t be taking your application for the post of project manager any further!”

The wind just caught the door and slammed it in your face.

You did your absolute very best;
Your positive attitude shone through;
You practised interviews with your coach;
Your people skills were strongly in evidence;
You illustrated your relevant transferable skills;
You expressed your achievements with confidence;
You asked all the right questions during the interview;
You remembered the "reservations" question at the end;
You gave evidence that you had researched the company.

Hold your nerve!

“As I say, we can’t offer you the PM role, we think you are beyond that, and therefore we would like to offer you the role of project director.”

When one door closes (sometimes) an even better one opens.

Of course you may not get the second sentence.

But in that case let the experience motivate you; immediately contact your coach or mentor and go through an interview debrief questionnaire.

“Now, what can I improve for next time?”
