One of the hardest experiences during your job search is not getting the job you want. Typically, the process involves applying for many roles, possibly in the hundreds and never hearing any feedback on your application. If you’re fortunate enough you might get a rejection email, or you attend an interview only to receive a rejection email despite feeling like the meeting went well.

The reasons are very generic such as the classic “We thought you were great for the role, but we hired someone with more experience” excuse – which can be disheartening.
