I recently reached out to a fairly large company to ask the founder if I could interview her. I was really excited to share the company and their unique approach to financial planning with you.
I spent time researching the company, prepared the list of interview questions and reached out to get the founder’s contact information. After emailing with her marketing manager I received a response that said “Hi Celina, Thank you for your interest in interviewing Shannon. We’re currently in a busy season and are not able to participate in an interview at this time. Thank you for reaching out.
Initially, all the feelings that come with rejection took over. I was looking forward to interviewing her so I felt discouraged and really disappointed.
While I don’t suspect I’ll be hearing from them any time soon I’m actually grateful they rejected me.
