Subject: bouncing back from interview disappointment (WAS: Advice needed for an upcoming interview)
How does one bounce back from this kind of disappointment? What can be learned from it? Am I barking up the wrong career tree?
I always tell myself... "Would I really want to work someplace where they didn't want to hire me?" because... really? Would you?
To Hire or Not To Hire decisions are totally out of the hands of the person being interviewed. For whatever reason, they did not find you a good fit. But it was a chance to dust off the resume and polish the interviewing skills a bit, and who knows, maybe someone you interviewed with did find something favorable about you and you'll cross paths in the future and have a leg up (technical writing can be a rather small world, at least for each geographical area).
