Rejection to Future Opportunity

When you get that rejection E-Mail or phone call for the dream job or internship position you were hoping for, that doesn’t mean the end.

There are certain steps you can take to keep yourself on an employer’s radar and perhaps be in the running for a future opportunity:
  1. Send a thoughtful thank you E-Mail or note.
  2. Ask the interviewer for feedback (either in a follow up phone or in-person appointment) to discuss what you could have done better.
  3. Reiterate your interest in the type of work you interviewed for and ask that the team keep you in mind for future similar opportunities.

For more detailed information you can access this link. The gist of this is that when one door closes another one can open if you stay positive.

Remember: The Career Center is here to help. Make use of our Quick Questions hours (Monday-Friday 10am-11am and 2pm-4pm) to get questions answered about following up with employers and quick interviewing advice.

Assistant Director
