I hate that answer…
I was told that yesterday.
What does that even mean? I have no idea.
But, who cares? Let’s not worry about it.
Let’s do this instead:
* Be thankful that they were impressed enough to schedule an interview (maybe my resume is actually quite good)
* Add those that I met to my LinkedIn network (for future relationship building)
* Find a better opportunity that would be more fulfilling (smaller/bigger organization, more/less structured, better hours, etc.)
* Finish that project I’ve been putting off (cleaning the garage, sorting my mismatched socks)
* Analyze the results internally and make some adjustments for next time (build my emotional muscles)
* Connect with new organizations and people (wow, I never knew they had an office here)
* Further research those topics that were discussed during the interview to expand my knowledge and potential (Apex – what the heck is that, I better check it out)
You can go in a different direction too!
Or maybe, you’re not in the mood for any of the above:
Go for a long walk, then write a little, then sing out loud, then:
Go eat a chocolate cupcake!
Better direction awaits…
