So you sent in your application for a job at Starbucks and didn’t get the call-back. Perhaps you heard from other applicants that they got the job, and you feel like you missed out. Don’t get discouraged, there are still things you can do to get that job, even if it’s not yet the end of the month.
The most important thing to do is not to give up. Sometimes you just have to be persistent and keep reaching out to the people you need to contact to get that job. Persistence may also mean taking a low-paying job for the time being, until you get a chance at a better role. Keep in mind that even if you don’t get the job at Starbucks specifically, you may end up elsewhere at the company, and if you do your research, you can still apply to other similar jobs that line up with your skillset. This may be a chance for you to learn something new, and build up enough experience to apply for a better job when you next go on the market.
It’s also important to analyze the situation and see what you can do to improve your odds of getting the job. If you did everything right, but still didn’t get a call-back, it may be time to reconsider whether or not you are in the right field. Do some research and see if there are other jobs out there that you’re more suited for. Sometimes the field you’re in isn’t as competitive as you think it is.
It’s never easy to get a job, but it can be even harder when you don’t get the one you wanted. The important thing to do is to remain positive. Sometimes it just takes a little bit of time, and a lot of patience.
