What should you do when an opportunity goes away?
The opportunity represents the short term; we now need to focus on the long-term.
How to do this:
FOCUS on the recruiter you worked with, how will you stay in touch; the employers you connected with, how will you stay in touch; the other contacts you reached out to for information about this opportunity, how will you stay in touch?
You now need to think through:
- How will you stay in touch, what will the process look like?
- How did you react to the news, demonstrate your professionalism?
- People feel guilty when they deliver bad news, how will you take advantage of it?
- How can you ensure getting some honest feedback from the people in the process so that you can improve your process?
