Are you all taking job rejections on the chin?

Just thought I'd ask, as I'd be interested to know how each of you deal with employers' knockbacks or - worse - no replies at all.

It's horrible.

I can't speak for everyone, but I'm not.

Thing is, what can you do about it other than keep going?

Chuck enough shit and some will surely stick.

Don't know about everyone else but I tend to start a new thread for every rejection I get.

Read, shred, move on. It's not the end of the world. There's more important things to worry about, but that's just me.

I know how you feel. I hate it when employers either ignore your application or knock you back. Some of these large retail stores are especially hard to get into, even for a temp Xmas job. You have to jump through all these ridiculous hoops (e.g. lengthy online questionnaires, crazy assessment days etc.).

I am NOT a happy bunny at the moment with the way all these employers are treating the unemployed.

Wench, yes, I know what you mean. But what about when you apply every day and get rejection after rejection after rejection after rejection . . . In the end, no matter how dismissive and impervious to knockbacks you might want to be, it does start to erode your confidence.

Not an easy thing to deal with, rejection. And total silence from employers is even worse.

God, what's gone wrong with this country?

Ah, nice to see SOMEBODY is taking a rather apathetic, light-hearted viewpoint of the poor, downtrodden unemployed!

Huh, sympathy for the devil, or what!

(Am being sarcastic there, AlexB, if you hadn't noticed.)

Employers have no duty to treat you nicely and your incessant whinging will not get you a job. Sigh!

They make you "jump through hoops" so that they get the people THEY want for THEIR jobs. If you're prepared to go through all that it shows determination to get the job. Competition is so high for jobs that they need to sort the wheat from the chaff. Just because YOU think you deserve the job, or really want a job, doesn't mean that you are suited to the job in question or that the company concerned think you're the person for the job.

Like I say, it's not the end of the world. Tomorrow is another day - just move on and stop focussing on the negative.

Only if you let it. You can't change the rejections so why worry or keep focussing on them. The only person to suffer because of it is you and those around you.

See above.

Too many people thinking that "the world" owes them! I know it's hard, but you're not the only person going through it. You have a roof over your head, food in your belly and one assumes you're in good health if you are applying for so many jobs every day. Be grateful for that - not all are in that position!!

Well, Grandmasterflash, all I can say about the employers who you described as not having any obligation to treat me "nicely" is this: I hope they end up recruiting somebody who will let them down (e.g. be constantly late, lark around on the job etc.). It will be their OWN fault for taking on somebody who would have been better replaced by an employee like me, who would ALWAYS be punctual, and would ALWAYS avoid larking around on the job like an idiot. In short, they would miss out on a good worker.

So it would be THEIR loss.

Agreed?

I'm not. You need to channel this (a)pathetic, woe-is-me attitude more constructively.

Why aren't you out now in the sun, speculatively dropping CV's around stores in Birkenhead, or Liverpool, or Cheshire Oaks etc?
