How do you keep from getting discouraged while job hunting? I’ve had 3 final round interviews in the past month and gotten passed over each time. Their reasoning is always “we went in a different direction”. Each of the interview processes was 4-5 interviews so it’s a big time commitment and really gotten my hopes up each time.

I was in the same not and I just got an offer I’m v happy with after having had one rescinded a few months ago. I honestly recommend apply to a slew of jobs then take a month off from the hustle. Recharge. Take a course or something to add to resume. Then try again

Someone with more experience was willing to work at the salary I requested 🤷🏻‍♀️ honestly good luck to them. I was desperate and only asked for 90k and the offer I just got was for $115, so it all worked out

Are they providing you any feedback? Are you applying to vastly different things or something similar?

Nope, literally the only feedback is them going in a different direction and all are similar roles. I’ve looked on linkedin to see who the jobs have gone to, and two of them went to people with 20+ years experience. Job descriptions required 6-8 years and I have 7 years plus a masters. But I guess that might be our job market right now!

What type of roles are you interviewing for?
