Might be off topic, but guys please, take care of your health. I've been rejected by all companies in the last 2 months.
I had my Walmart interview today and it went really well. And guess what? I got a rejection email.
I felt dizziness while working and fell down today.
I had to go to the doctor due to the anxiety and stress I was carrying since the last 2 months. It has affected my health.

It's important to push yourself to achieve your goals, but don't forget to "Live" in the process.

Walking is a good stress buster. Another laughing without reason. Please do not try second option without proper supervision otherwise people will consider you mad.
One can aim for min 1 hour walk in morning as well as night during interview process
And don't forget treat yourself after every rejection or selection. Go out to eat, buy something for yourself. Keep in mind don't splurge. These things worked for me. May be it can help others as well.

I will talk about a coincidence. Last year I applied and gave interview for 5 months but met only rejections. Last company where I faced rejections was really good and not hoping myself to be rejected but still things were not on my side. Then i got ill and left the idea of job search.
This year I again started in Feb after 6 months of break and the first company I cleared was the same last company from which I faced rejection. I didn't think at that time but now when I got some free time and looked my past. I believe this was something that was destined for.

I can understand what you're going through. Great thoughts from you. Have gone through what you went through since the better part of 2019. Applied for at least 100+ positions and got rejected on almost everyone. Only got 4 interviews out of all of them. At one point, I thought that there was something wrong with me. I had so much stress that I started to get short term memory loss and became so depressed that all I wanted to do was stay in bed to avoid facing another day. Stay strong and healthy!

Every time I had a rejection I went for a run and then bath in warm water.
The disappointed goes away and you learn from the experience.

Has almost 15 rejections and then 5 sucessful interviews. Finally got the offer I really wanted.

I myself suffer from anxiety and physical excercise is best way to get rid of it

1. Don't tell anyone(including your family) that you're attending interviews . Because they ask what happened. If you don't clear it. It's stressful to convey.
2. Do a long time interview preparation, so that one doesn't have to refresh all the concepts at the last minute. Last day preparation is always stressful.
3. One should remember that he/she already having existing job. If you don't get a new job, that's not going to impact at all.
4. One should not compare himself/herself with any one. Especially the salary part.
5. I have seen people doing all the work in one stretch without any break . Instead of this it's less stressful to do the work in small chunks.

Keep trying at your pace.

I do have anxiety problem, when I get some work. Though I am able to do it still when something comes up, i get nervous. How to handle this situation?

like

I was like little in that situation. Here are the things that helped me.

1. List down your tasks on paper for the day sorted by priority descending.

2. For each task - write down the steps/process in abstract and follow these steps when doing.

3. Take some 20-30 min break for every 2-3hr focused work. Do only relaxing activities during break eg: watch comedy, chat with family/friends, sleep, meditate. This will help us recharge ourselves.

4. Have sometime daily like 5-6pm for workouts/sports/yoga. Doing it with discipline will create big difference.

5. Go for some place evey 3/6 months and try to have conversation with unknown people.

Last one: DO NOT BRING WORK INTO LIFE AND LIFE INTO WORK.
