I find myself losing hope when I get rejections, and I ask myself why am I putting so much time and effort into these application forms? How will this affect my life in the near future? Then I picture myself in five years time and the feeling of being employed in a prestigious firm brings a smile to my face. I don’t give up easily and I’ve been told that every experience is a good experience; you learn something from it. My learning journey is that during the time I am spending on each application, I am finding out a lot about myself in terms of my skills and strengths. The more I practice, the easier it gets in the end - well that’s what I’d like to think!
I would strongly recommend that if you get an opportunity, take advantage of it - life is too short for taking opportunities for granted. Success won’t come to you until you start walking towards it.
