“Thank you for your interest in the xxx position with xxx, and for taking time from your busy schedule to interview. Interviews have been completed. We found your credentials to be truly impressive and sincerely enjoyed meeting with you. Although it was a difficult decision, the position has been offered to and accepted by another candidate.

I used to save them in a pile, but once they became commonplace, I stopped. And that was when I was working, but looking for a more secure position with benefits. I continue to get them, but I’m 2+ years out from steady work and they’re no longer novel. I’ve become familiar with rejection. I eat discouragement every day for breakfast. Then I push on into the new day.
It’s always worked out for me in my life somehow or other and I expect it will this time too. I’m a survivor. But if you didn’t have my strength and resourcefulness and toughness and optimism, I can see how this kind of shit could wear a person down. Hang in there and keep on pushing. You’ll surely fail if you give up.
