Then you move to introspection, looking for the flaws within yourself that led to the failure.

You were not rejected; the outcome you desired was. Be honest about the motives. You might be wanting the wrong thing.

Rejection as a mentor

Nobody likes to feel rejected. When you are turned down, you can be overcome with the temptation to take it personally. It is an illusion to think you could change this outcome if only you performed better.

The employer that turned you down is not saying you are worthless, just that they want someone with different traits.
