Job Rejection

Have you ever noticed how gratitude always makes you feel better, even if you are in a very depressive moment?

I learned that today.

I was waiting for the Director of an English academy to get back to me this morning. I had an interview with him 2 weeks ago. While I was confident that I would get the job, I found out today that the job isn't mine. I believed I would be hired, but I am not.

Of course, it hurts to know that I am not one of the teachers he chose. Yet, I would like to be polite and to respond his email graciously. I typed the words, but I got stuck. I didn't know how to respond his email.

I googled and found this brilliant post about responding graciously to a job rejection and I wrote my email. Here's what I wrote:

Dear Mr. ...,

It surely pains me to know how this opportunity goes. However, I thank you for getting back to me. I would also like to thank you for taking the time to conduct an interview with me. It was such a pleasure to meet you and ... and learn about the academy. I might not be in a position to ask favors, yet if you have a moment to spare I would love any additional feedback. Please do not feel obligated to answer this question, but if there was something you noticed, it will help me in my job search and I would be most appreciated.
I hope everything works out with you and your new teachers.

While writing the email, I felt gratitude in me. I know that not getting the job doesn't mean I am not good enough. I believe I will get the job I want. I know I will get the best for me, just when the time is perfectly set.
