Rejection is integral to life as an academic. Our papers get rejected from journals, our book proposals from editors, and our pitches from online publishers. We get rejected from dissertation fellowships, research teams, faculty advisors we seek, you name it. And if we’ve somehow avoided rejection so far, the job market is there waiting with a likely avalanche of NOs from jobs and postdocs. Rejection is just part of the show, and learning how to deal with rejection productively is essential if we’re going to keep going in the academy.
In this webinar, Ideas on Fire coach and perennial reject Dr. Kate Drabinski will help you learn how to navigate rejection without getting derailed, how to get back on track, and how to keep doing the work, even when the universe feels like it’s trying to tell you to stop.
