What a Year of Job Rejections Taught Me About Pitching Myself After sending out hundreds of copies of my résumé to dozens of companies over the last year, I realized that I was getting nowhere because my approach was wrong. I did everything I was taught to do: I created a list of the top 20 companies I wanted to work for, I customized my résumé for each opening, I networked online and offline. I met some fantastic people throughout the process, but nothing got me closer to a securing a role, or even a chance to interview. What I had failed to do was ask myself some of the tough and honest questions early on. My story began in May 2014 when after 10 years of building a successful career in the Middle East, I decided to move to Silicon Valley to look for opportunities with tech companies. As a few months turned into a year and I saw no signs of progress, I reached a point of panic. As a marketer, I decided to re-frame the challenge.

There was another reason I’d signed up to go back to school—I was intimidated by trying to learn about any kind of math-like technology, coding in particular, that didn’t fall into a strict curriculum. So far, I had been able to qualify as a “digital expert” out of sheer youth. I had a reputation among my friends of having all the wrong kinds of paranormal abilities. I was also horrifically bad at math and good at writing and reading. That night at the bar, I politely changed the subject with my new friend and we continued the night pleasantly.
