I had an interview Friday before last and was rejected the following Monday. I was exceedingly disappointed as I was really excited about the job, helping youths find work. Then last Sunday I was reading your blog and you suggested e-mailing to follow up on the rejection and ask what I could do to make myself a stronger candidate. I did that at 1:30 am right after I read your advice. The next day I got a call and they offered me the position I had interviewed for!! I believe I would not have gotten this job if I hadn't followed your advice. Thank you so much.
That. is. awesome.
