Sometimes, despite the best planning, the best preparation, the best resume proofreading, and the best interview practice in the world, a perfectly qualified candidate can still receive a negative response from an employer….or even worse, no response at all. In fact, this happens all the time. The word “no” is actually a standard part of the job search that all candidates should be prepared for.It’s important to think positive, but when rejection happens, a dignified response can turn a disappointing moment into a valuable experience. The right reaction can also help you strengthen your reputation and your personal brand over the long term. Keep these moves in mind.
