The question of the day is wondering how much rejection I can take before it actually starts to knock down my self-esteem. And let me tell you, I have a high sense of self-esteem and I rarely if ever get truly bummed by anything, rather choosing to go with the flow.
I've been rejected from a few other places I've applied to though I'm still waiting to hear from some others. I'm continuously looking for and applying to different places (internships and entry level jobs) so that way I have a choice when (notice I said when, not if) I get the opportunity to work for one of them.
Here's the bright side--and if you know me, you'd know that I spout out a lot of positivity stuff and I'm a firm believer in it--it's giving me the opportunity to figure out what it is I ultimately want as a career and what I want to focus it on. Recently I've been looking at PR, being a magazine editor/writer--because I want to travel--, a paid blogger--traveling would work for that too--, or a social media professional--let's face it, I'm always on twitter anyway--as well as my dream job for being an actress.
(Of course that's all above my dream of being on the NY Times Best Seller List. *fingers crossed*).
It gives me time to place precedence on the hobbies that I'd love to have time to continue if not work on more (running and playing the guitar), as well as helps me think of different ways each of those could potentially fall in with each other.
So, yes, I still get disappointed when I see that a company/place I applied to has chosen to skip on giving me an interview. Yes, it makes me discouraged at time if not worried. But I know it's all happening for a reason and that I'm going to get my start soon.
Now, if you know anyone that needs a writer/guitarist/skater/extreme sports enthusiast, let me know 'cause I'll be perfect for the job.
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
