You can shake off a rejection and keep going and learn from your rejection, and trust me I had a lot of rejection and I kept going and didn't stop until I got a position and I am still putting in application for a higher position. And you have to keep going and don't stop, because something will come your way

I read a lot of other people that have been rejected in society. For instance, Oprah Winfrey was fired from being a reporter, they told her she will never be a fit for television. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team because his coach said he was not good enough. Sylvester Stallons "Rocky" scripts were rejected 1500 times before a director picked it up. Colonel Sanders's Chicken recipe was denied 1009 times before he made it big. Steven Speilberg was rejected 3 times from U.S.C. School of Theater. Rejection does not have to be the end only the beginning of a wonderful journey.

Its so frustrating! Great question. Its easier said that done to just 'not let it affect you'. If it was an opportunity I was really excited about, I'll take some time to focus on things during the process that went well, and then move onto the next thing. Because even if it wasn't a good fit for you, it wasn't a failure overall!
