Albeit, not a “working” actor, still, I’ve had my 10+ studio films or TV shows that still send me those penny paychecks from residuals (although my Bad Mom’s Christmas in January check gets up to $150 sometimes! WOAH!).
As an actor, rejection is the name of the game. It becomes second nature.
But what about people who aren’t rejected so often?
What about those who struggle with being told, “eh” or “nah.”
What about those that feel rejection triggers debilitating anxiety or depression?
Those are the people I want to help understand that it’s OK. It’s a part of everyday life.
And yes, while it still sucks, and can be hard to understand this concept of being carefree, it’s all about how you handle the rejection.
How you can either compartmentalize it or pick up your bootstraps and move on.
To something worth your value.
That’s why it’s imperative that when you get rejected on a job opportunity, you need to handle it well.
Below is a follow-up message to a job rejection notice…meaning, that if they picked someone else as a candidate that someone is not you, here is a message you can send the hiring team or recruiter.
Remember again, it’s all about how you handle that rejection.
Even if they said “no” to this role, doesn’t mean it’ll be a “no” for the next opening you match up with.
You want to be top of mind for once that next role opens!
So, communicate this follow-up example below and then reach out and “tickle” the contacts at the organization every 6-8 weeks.
