How To Cope With Regret Mails – Job Seekers

Before reading this post, you might want to check Things Unemployed Graduates Should Know.

You are probably pondering on what the topic insinuates and where it’s driving at? Maybe, the subject matter “regret mail” is not clear enough. It’s just simply that mails that points to the fact that your job application was not successful. Let’s take a sample :

Dear Josephine,

Thank you for applying for the position of a software engineer at Edogee Groups Of Software Companies. We appreciate your interest in our company and your commitment to sensible software improvement.

We received more than 2000 applications for the position, and the hiring process has been a very competitive one. Although we were impressed with your qualifications, we have decided not to move your application forward. However, we greatly appreciate your interest in working with us and wish you the best of luck with your job search.


Ciroma Chukwuma Taiwo,
Chief of Staff.

By the time you see something like that excerpt dancing in your mail, then you should know that the job search continues as your job application at such company was unsuccessful.
This is a very critical issue that pours a very cold water in the mind of any job seeker and makes it look impossible for that dream job to come around. Sit back, as we go through How To Cope With Regret Mails – Job Seekers.

  • First and foremost, never expect much from any job application. The more you expect and it fails, the more disappointed you will be. You only need to do what you have to do in terms of applying for the job, then leave the spot like pimple, for God to clear for you. By the time you are already updating facebook status, celebrating a yet-to-be-gotten job, probably because you think you did well in the interview, then you got struck with a regret mail… Well, facebook posts can always be deleted. But, try not to count your chickens before they are hatched.
  • Never put all your eggs in one basket. Put your hand into any employment hole you see and drop your application right in there. By the time a company comes around with its regret mail, you just wave it off as you still have some backups, at least.
  • Know that every disappointment is a blessing, not in disguise, but a real blessing because it makes you come out stronger.You tend to grow smarter by the lessons you will learn through that experience. Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise. You might get a regret mail today, tomorrow might hold a better package, keep calm and wait for your time. Pray to your God and all wil be well.
  • Rise up and keep moving. You might get a regret mail today, apply for another job tomorrow and probably gatecrash another the following day. Life is not a rehearsal, the camera is always rolling. Quitters don’t win, same as how winners don’t quit. Keep moving, don’t stop till you arrive at your destination.

Rounding off the post with this quote by Alexander Graham Bell “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
