Trying to remain positive

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Just got the call yesterday... I didn't get the job that I wanted. Had a feeling after a couple of weeks had passed with no word.

As my DW keeps reminding me, something better will come along. Certainly opportunity knocked earlier this week; I think it is time to explore further after 18 years.

Keeping the chin up and pushing through!

    I'am so sorry to hear this Eric! Bunch of bums! Did they at least give you legitimate reasons? At least you went for it and gave it your all! Take it as a learning opportunity you can put to use in the future (near or far). Best of luck with whatever next step you choose! There is a greater reason for everything! emoticon

    When one door closes, another opens. Plus one thing that I have learned is keep as any doors open as possible. Send an email to the people you spoke to at the job that you did not get, thanking them for be considered and let them know that if another opportunity arises to please contact you.

    we face disappointment often, trying to remain positive is the best attitude and maybe something will work out for the better

    Very disappointing. Keep moving forward (which is easy for me to say....) because something WILL come that is right for you!

    Sorry that you didn't get the job Rod and I know its easy for me to say this, not being in your shoes, but that means its not meant to be and that something else is out there for you!!! Hang in there and stay positive!!!! emoticon

    That's encouraging. I need to remain optimistic in the same situation. Thanks for the reminder.
