Normalizing Rejection

Job hunting can be a tough journey, especially when rejection becomes a recurring theme. Take Caitlyn, a PhD student in Michigan, who transformed her 17 rejection letters into a symbol of resilience. When defending her dissertation, she wore a skirt crafted from those rejection letters, challenging the stigma around failure.

Caitlyn's unique creation stemmed from a desire to normalize rejection. She believes that rejection is a natural part of the success journey, a reminder that persistence is key. Her message is simple: keep trying. If a door closes, it doesn't mean you're not qualified or deserving; it's an opportunity to refine your approach.
