All may not be lost if you are turned down

CareerBuilder quotes Joshua Siva, coauthor of BOLD: Get Noticed, Get Hired. He says it may b e OK to reapply to a company that said no.

First, try to understand why you weren't chosen the first time and fix that gap.

Second, follow up over a few month period with the HR person, reiterating your qualifications and desire to work there.

You may have to take a different position or try a different dept to get your foot in the door.

I even know of a person who was fired who is reapplying to a company. She got through one layer of scrutiny. I don't quite get that one, but whatever.

The employment world is wacky these days.
