Topic Details


This Shop Talk will address a common challenge in academia: rejection. Whether it is for funding, a publication, or academic employment, rejection is a normal part of the application process. While these experiences often cause grief, this presentation will help attendees develop strategies for processing rejection and responding to feedback through engagement with the following concepts:
• acknowledging the negative impacts of rejection
• understanding the benefits of non-selection
• interpreting negative feedback as constructive criticism
• building on feedback to move forward and persevere
