How to turn rejection into opportunities (Guest speaker: Stephanie Nuesi)
March 29, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Rejection is part of our lives – we all experience it at some point. While it’s not fun being rejected, if you approach rejection with the right mindset, the outcomes can be real fun!
Our guest speaker, CEO of Max Up, Stephanie Nuesi, arrived in the United States as an international student in 2016.
For the first few years, she battled with her English skills and self-confidence.
She got rejected by companies like Google, JPMorgan Chase & Co., PwC, and Deloitte, and panicked because she didn’t think she was going to be able to articulate her thoughts and her value.
That lack of confidence hurt her chances while job searching and therefore, she experienced rejection multiple times.
Was it easy for her? NO!
So what did she do to turn things around?
She decided to trust herself more, give herself more credit, and most importantly, she started asking for help.
The result? she landed internships at the places where she originally got rejected and now she’s celebrating an upcoming opportunity with Google.
Stephanie will share her best tips on how you can manage rejection and turn it into amazing life opportunities.
We will celebrate the journey of thousands of immigrants and international students who learn to get back on their feet to follow their dreams and contribute to the growth of their new homes!!
