Not receiving a job offer isn't a failure at all. It's a learning opportunity. Focus on what you did right and what you feel you could've improved upon, and build from there. It's prep for your next interview opportunity. It's only a failure if you quit on yourself. Keep your head up!

Have you reached out to find out what was missing? If you can get constructive feedback then you have clarity and what you may need to get to yes. Also keep your faith. No experience is wasted. Try to be open to the reason for the delay. The next one might be the one. Wishing you the best!

Tysm for the kind words. All I could do was pray I was so sad. I spoke to the recruiter and they all loved me. The other person fit the role but they feel I fit the company so much they want to open something else 😭🙏🏾

It’s okay. It happens. I believe it when they say right before the breakthrough, it gets really tough. But honestly, that’s how you know...you’re almost there. Hang in there! Don’t give up. Millions of jobs out there, so there most certainly is one God has with your name on it!

Hang in there. Last time I was hunting for a new job, it took me like 18 months. Take a break if you need to.

This is not a bad thing. You are supposed to attract what’s meant for you. If you don’t get the job, that’s not the place 🥴
