Career Tip from a VMware Recruiter: How to Handle Rejection

This week’s Career Tip from a VMware Recruiter comes to you from Clint Buelter, R & D Recruiter at VMware in Austin, TX:

As a candidate you apply to jobs, research companies, meet recruiters, and attend interviews. With the drive and purpose to make a forward move in your career. The reality is, you won’t get every job you apply to or interview for, there is a multitude of other candidates in the market actively or passively. And let’s face it, there is always someone out there smarter / better than you in your industry or profession.

Don’t be discouraged, here is the tip.:

What to do when you hear “we regret to inform you, that we are moving forward with other candidates…”

My advice, and I know at first this seems obvious,  is to:

  1. Thank your recruiter for their time (in reply to the email or on the phone).
  2. Thank them for introducing you to the team / speaking on your behalf.
  3. Ask if they would please thank the team for taking their time to meet with you or provide you with an address that you could send a professional thank you note to the interviewers (this added touch let’s them know your a good sport and leaves a lasting impression).
  4. And finally, ask your recruiter if you can add them to your network (Linkedin/Twitter) so that you can be connected for future opportunities.

If you do these things as a candidate, you will stand out to the organization, the teams, and the recruiter. Who do you think a hiring team/recruiter will call the next time they have a similar role? The candidate who slams the phone down after arguing how great a candidate they are or the candidate that says thank you and leaves a good, professional impression?
