Have you ever been rejected?
Maybe you were turned down for a job you thought you were the perfect fit or maybe your boss didn’t consider you for a promotion.
You may have also experienced rejection in your personal life.
Maybe your crush has no interest in you or the #boyfriend you were ready to marry broke it off.
Whatever the case, rejection is hard.
It hurts, but we still need to know how to handle rejection with grace and gratitude.
1. Give Thanks
It may seem awkward to say thank you to someone who just turned you down, but it’s still important.
In the business world you are thanking the person for their time, the opportunity, and the fact that they even considered you for the position.
The fact that you even got an interview proves you were qualified, just not the right fit.
