keep your head up and dont get down

just want to spread some good vibes around the holidays.

this interview process is brutal and getting rejected around the holidays doesnt feel good. some of us are already down around the holidays due to family, careers, etc. and getting turned down for your dream job just makes things worse.

i was pretty down this morning after dealing with a bad interviewer last week that was a total jerk, got rejected this morning by a top pre-ipo company even though i answered all of the questions corectly (learned that its not just about being right) and started to question my intelligence and worth.

then i got news that i passed my google interview and am getting scheduled for an onsite.

so many of us get rejected for silly arbitrary things that are outside of our control. its just life. so many factors go into these interviews.

i think its important to keep in perspective that these are the hardest interviews in the world and its a learning proces.

life is never as bad as it seems and never as great as it seems. its somewhere in the middle.

keep your head up and keep chasing your dreams!

have a wonderful week and an even better holidays!

    The job market is very challenging at times.

    Fingers crossed for you and all seeking new roles.

    I had a similar experience recently. I emailed recruiter why I dint perform to my best abilities and asked for another phone screen. Especially smaller companies are generally ok to give a second try for phone screen.
