But I'm terribly sorry to hear that. I've already been rejected twice, definitely one of the worse feelings.
Even worse if you have been spoiled like I have been.
I've had my immediate superiors not only try to terminate my position but also kick me out of the company altogether. They would have succeeded, if their superiors hadn't had firsthand evidence of my work quality.
School bullying ain't got diddly on workplace bullying.

The word bullying became entirely vacuous.
It's been that way for a while.
I've been preaching its near destruction for a while. Anytime I hear some say, "all you need to do is stick up to a bully", I know they've never met a true bully.
There was thread somewhere about this. All I know I lived twice in my life where it was near hell to be a kid.
I remedied the first bullying around age eight or so with a brick repeatedly to someone's head. (Kids were holding my younger brother down try to take out his stitches. And we were the wrong color.)
Then when I had to relocate to a place of my own color. It required a more blunt instrument and much less blunt instrument and a few trips to court and what passed for jail / juvenile confinement.
In both cases, the bullies only stopped cause I had less to lose and was willing to permanently alter their lives. Where I live now, there are people I would do anything not to get mixed with as they have way less than I ever did. Nothing short of killing them would stop their bullying. For better or worse, I still can carry that ugliness and they assume I have almost as less to lose as they do.
I could eat alive every human I work with. I can't imagine what anyone could possibly do which would amount to bullying. And I've been threatened with termination for the most silly of reasons.
It was nothing like having kids hit you with baseball bats who are about twice your size as a kid.
