Overcoming job rejection
Assert Your Qualifications

Q: I received rejection letter from companies that I know I was perfect for. I don't know what I am doing wrong or what to do next.

1) Take the time to review your resume (or get someone else to review it).

2) Think of what the questions were during the interview and then write down your answers as best you can remember.  Run these by a friend and see what they think of your answers.

3) To over come job rejection, call the employer back and state that you are still very interested in the job, and if the other candidates did not prove to be qualified, I would love the opportunity to discuss the position again. Ask what concerns they had about your skills and experience. they might avoid the issue nor give you a vague answer but then again they might give you some valuable feedback.  Depending on what they say, you can try to overcome the concerns by providing them with more info perhaps or you can use their criticisms as something to work on for your next interview with another employer.  Many people hate doing follow up calls because they might annoy the employer or they might sound desperate but really you have nothing to lose since they have already rejected you and you might gain important information that can help you by just spending a few  minutes to do a follow up call.
