11 Tweets Proving Rejection Is Not As Devastating As It Seems


11 Tweets Proving Rejection Is Not As Devastating As It Seems

Recently on Twitter, the hashtag #shareyourrejection(s) has become quite visible. People across Twitter are sharing their job rejections for creative jobs across the board. There are names you might recognize, like Angela Kinsey, in the thread as well as other people with success stories.

As someone who graduated from college recently, I've had my share of job rejections as well. It can become extremely disheartening to receive so many rejections. Yet, after reading a bunch of the rejections tweets, it gives me hope that my dream job is out there, waiting for me to apply. So, I've picked 11 of my favorite tweets to pass that hope along to other people.

1. This once aspiring actress is inspiring all of us now

2. Would "The Office" have been the same??

3. Try, try, try again (x4)

4. All you science people, this one is for you!

5. Writer peeps, you're up!

6. The rejection is only the beginning

7. You never know where your passions will lead

8. All you cartoonists (aspiring or otherwise), this one is yours!

9. TV writers, inspiration for you!

10. "Persistence is everything"

11. The two folders

I know the rejections can be extremely grating and difficult. I'm right there with you on that feeling. But reading how other people's rejections turned into acceptances down the line has given me so much hope and inspiration.

So I'll leave you with this reminder from William, who remembered it from Frank:

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register.
