Not possible because EY rejected me very recently!!!

I have said no and had to block phone numbers and emails. I actually think these kinds of low-stakes interactions are a great way to practice just saying no.

I use salary requirements as a blow off. They usually leave me alone after that.

Then tell them it would be even better with all of that plus matching to your salary expectations lol but honestly, I would just think this as you dodged a bullet going through this now. Think about how terrible it will be going through this after you started working for them

I mean worst thing they can do to you is taking that offer away and not hire you in the future. You are already saying no thank you and you did your part saying this. Just say no to these meetings if you don't want to talk to them. No need to get stressed about it. Just think about 3-day week coming up instead! :)

How do y’all deal with rejections for job applications ? I applied for a position to a different organization doing the same thing I do now in security and they denied me… not even an interview request… really hits my confidence. I’m good at my job, and I’ve gotten good rating, but I do lack a bit more technical skill… Not planning on leaving but just puts things into perspective… what if I get fired and I can’t even get an interview for these positions ?
