Why don’t we see more social media posts about the dozens of rejection notices and botched interviews before someone lands the job of their dreams?
Because social media is a carefully curated version of your life that trims out the ugly parts.
It’s natural to want to share the good times and brush the not-so-good times under the rug.
I’ll share that I had countless rejections when I made my first career transition. I cringe thinking about the recruiter screens I botched when I first learned to share my story.
I had so many recruiters ghost me after the first conversation and if I did get the interview, it would be crickets afterward.
Today’s #MondayMotivation is to remember that for every post you see about someone’s success, remember there were many failures and rejections to get there!
You’re not alone!
