Save Rejection Letters

A former boss gave me some advice, don’t accept “no” for an answer by phone. Ask the company to put it into an e-mail or letter. That way, you have something to add to your file. I started doing this a few years ago You want cold proof that the company gave you a thumbs-down. What do I do with them you ask? Well I keep them in a file for reference. Depending on the reason and for what project, I want to make sure I don’t make the same pitch to them. I can also use it for reference. They might not have needed ONE of my services. Some letter actually say what they are looking for, so I might be able to come back to them with ANOTHER service I offer.

It shows that I am professional and not emotional (which could impress them after all). I also use it as motivation to keep pushing forward. And learning why someone doesn’t hire you can teach you. Maybe I need to improve my pitch or change my marketing. Failure CAN breed success!!
