Failure Brief #3-Interview Failures The Failure Sessions

    • Business

Interviewing can be an incredibly emotional process that drains you mentally, but it's not how you interview that I'm focused on today it's all about what happens if you fail to land the role.  
While nobody has a perfect track record through the interview process, I believe that it's all about how we bounce back and use the learning's to progress forward.  Failing to land a job gives us the feedback and perspective for how to move forward.  This information helps us to improve and gives us the fuel to be successful on the next round.  
My own personal failures in the interview process have led me to where I am today.  I'm incredibly thankful to Comcast telling me no in 2010, and Amazon telling me no in 2012 and 2014.  If you've been following along on previous Failure Brief's then you'll know I was told no several times right out of college!  These closed doors taught me to think different about my preparation and my brand.  I used that feedback to eventually land the role I have today.  In fact, I'm still using that feedback today to develop as it made a lasting impact on me I will never forget.  
Remember, you're always being interviewed and the way you bounce back will define what happens next for you.  I hope this week's episode gives you some insight the next time you find yourself being told no.
