When people face rejection, they often do not have an idea as to why.  There was an article on the internet today about people being rejected for positions.  Many of the reasons were wrong, mean and frankly unbelievable. Some of their reasoning is as follows:  A person walked into the room and the interviewer said they were not aggressive enough. I cannot fathom that.  Another person was turned down because she took time off to take care of her dying husband.  What type of person does not understand that? Another person was turned down because they felt she was too intelligent. Other individuals have been rejected for disabilities even though it is against the law.  When people are in a position of power they flex their muscles. It is completely wrong. People need to be evaluated on their skills.  Years ago my late husband and I had a technical contract employment company.  I classified all resumes or CV’s.  I also did the placement of almost every person.  I never met the individuals.  They were all judged on their skills which I felt was the right way to hire a person.  They never had in person interviews and the hiring manager could easily figure out their ages.  In this way, many people were hired based totally on performance.  There are other forms of rejection such as in relationships.  When a person is rejected they need to know why.  The person ending the association should have the common courtesy to tell the other person why.  Breakups tend to leave the other person hanging wondering what they did wrong, what they might have changed, etc. It’s not easy.  No matter what a person says or does, being fair is most important.  If you dislike a person, reject them for a job, end a relationship, at least let the other person know why.  It’s important for closure and peace of mind, don’t you agree?
