Welp, it finally happened.
I checked the mail on Friday and received the first rejection letter from a resume I sent out.
I sent a resume and wonderfully written cover letter to an office that had not advertised a position. Although I had heard that they were possibly hiring, apparently they aren't (at least according to the rejection letter).
And besides, even if they were hiring, there are just so many graduates looking for jobs right now. So I'm neither shocked nor devastated by the rejection, that's just how it goes.
And actually, it's kind of nice to receive an actual rejection letter (who woulda thought?!). Most firms/offices don't even bother rejecting you (at least in my little experience)... they just leave you to wonder if they ever even received your cover letter that you spent time crafting for them. (By the way - how annoying is that? At least let me know you're rejecting me instead of leaving me to wonder if I addressed the envelope wrong and you never even saw the resume/cover letter that looks exactly like the hundreds of other resumes/cover letters you're receiving).
Today is a new day, and a new week, so there's no time to dwell on past rejections... only looking forward! I know it will all work out and something will come up... I just wish it would be sooner rather than later!
