Professional Answers Preview
We have all been rejected at some point, and that is okay! The key is sharing how we have learned and grown from our rejections. Think back to a time when you were rejected from something. Maybe you didn't receive a job you were hoping for. Perhaps you didn't make the college football team. Or, maybe you were vying for a promotion, and it was given to your peer. Share an overview of what you were rejected for focusing on what you learned from the situation. Tell the interviewer how you positively handled the situation even though you were very disappointed. Finally, be sure to mention how you made the most of the outcome and are successful today even after the rejection.
