It’s difficult to tell what is natural versus fabricated. Two of my dreams happened in real life; this is an occasional occurrence. However, the realization was unnerving. This week brought rejections from three different companies with the exact same reason for not selecting me (decided to give the position to an internal candidate). I have spent months working to change my situation and failed at each opportunity.
It’s time to be still. There are no more options; I have to accept this reality, for now.
