I’ve been rejected quite a few times in my process already. Failure is good because it is a learning opportunity. I also determined that some of them were actually not a good fit at all through rejection. Just keep plugging along and do your prep work. Be confident. You’ll get a new job!

And I have a knack for screwing up first impressions and interviews.

Tell yourself you’re awesome until you believe it because you are. Period. You are going to kill it and if they don’t like you then their loss!
