Maybe you've just started to apply for jobs or you may have made some applications, but have not secured a job yet.
Receiving another rejection letter can be disheartening and you may be feeling frustrated or anxious; what should you do?
The best place to start is to review what's been happening.
Perhaps you're not getting past the application form or CV stage - why might that be?
