Job seekers share advice on bouncing back from rejection

Posted: Monday, September 11, 2006

"Don't let it consume you. I know guys who obsess over it like they found out their girlfriends were cheating on them or something. You just have to move on. You could waste so much time trying to figure out what went wrong that you might miss out on the next opportunity."

- Alexander Webster,

Madison, Wis.

"I like to go back and recreate the interview so I can find out where I might have slipped up or what I might have done differently. I think it's important to retrace your steps, so to speak, to make sure you didn't make any major mistakes. And if you did, you have to figure out how to correct them."

- Suzanne Walsh,

Point Pleasant, N.J.

"Get your mind on something else. Read a book in a couple of days or immerse yourself in movies for a couple of nights. I always need to step back a bit and zone out on something before I move on."

- Cedric Lowell,

Chicago
