Where the Losers at??

Jul 16 39 Comments

Where my rejects at? The people who keep getting rejections from every company they try? Got my 5th rejection today in past 1 yr 🤗

* Btw companies:
Google onsite
FB onsite
Bloomberg onsite
Splunk Phone (thought I killed it)
Nvidia (3 phone interviews - thrown from one team to another)

And +1000 more rejections by not even having resume picked.

**Thanks for pointing out it should be loser and not ‘looser’, had a brief lapse of grammar

*** Don’t forget to listen to the official soundtrack of this post. It’s called ‘Loser’ by Jagwar Twin 🤗

      Albertsons is the company that reject the losers
      Jul 16
    • OP
      I could not even submit my resume at Albertsons. The link to their website was broken although rumor has it that I was pre-screened and deemed unworthy to even apply and banned to access their job portal for life

    Just five ? Lol. I’ve got 15 just in the past two months

    • OP
      By rejection I mean at least having one interview with the company, not the resume getting picked stage. But if you had 15 interviews in 2 months thats dope! You will make it through eventually. For me it is a dry spell followed by a period of hope and then the dreaded rejection email comes and I am plunged into darkness again

      I’m not even including the ones that have not gone through the recruiter. Just phone screens plus onsites only. I have a tracker like Jira to track the progress of each company and it is mind boggling

    Hi5! Three rejections this year, two of those are Amazon and Google. Sad for a while but then happy that my resume was picked from hundreds and thousands, recruiter contact, learning experience, etc.

    Keep growing at your company and that will help you negotiate a better role / being rejected also means that now you have good experiences and that will make you stronger

    I had a referral at Google and Facebook. Both refused to talk to me and denied me immediately. I didn’t even have a chance to make an impression.

    I was referred by people in management and I have a masters, steady track record of employment and all proper licenses etc.

    🙋‍♂️100% rejections so far — waiting on more to come. Probably a dumb question: if a recruiter wants to know about any deadlines (since I let them know about other on-sites), should I just let them know I got some rejections? If I keep saying “no deadlines,” they probably already know what’s up.

    You are getting picked up by good companies which means your profile is good. Try to look at your on-site approach, See where you can improve, you have enough rejects to build a pattern by now. Good Luck. I believe in you stranger.
