You've been rejected. Now what?

If you're giving up after the first no, that's far too early.

I got rejected during Bain's resume screening last year so I emailed the recruiter to pitch myself for the role.

It worked. She advanced me to the interview stage.

Bain didn't end up working out, but I used a similar technique with McKinsey and eventually landed a full-time offer.

This applies to all job searches.

If you really want a role, keep going. Don't give up at the first no.
