Thanks for the post. Sometimes the best way to be encouraging is to admit that sometimes you get discouraged, too!

I have that song, "I get knocked down, but I get up again..." running through my brain after reading this post. :)

I totally LOVE that song! That's going to become my new mantra to get me through this graduate school gig!


I think it is wonderful that your advice has helped you get over this funk. If you have found your own advice encouraging, then you know you are writing quality posts with the power to help others too. Glad to hear you are out of the funk, and moving on. Best wishes on Plan B!

Next time someone tells me they did not get the job they went for and were sure they should have I will refer them to this excellent post! Thank you.
Above all - the hiring process is managed by a person. When studying HRM at University I recall being told that we have a tendency to hire in our own image ( people like us) and whilst that is not fair ( and possibly not very clever) I am sure it happens.
All the documentation, processes and procedures cannot take the human aspect out of the hiring!
Plan B might be way better than Plan A every was.
Keep smiling


It's always a sign of being good advice when it is used by the person giving it, good post.
