Being rejected for a job is a new experience for me. Since being in high school, I had only been rejected for two jobs for which I had applied. As a result, I am changing my approach of selectively applying to jobs in which I had some interest in the role or the company, which worked for the first part time job I got. I expect I will need to apply to more part time job opportunities since my job offer success rate fallen to 15% or less. If I should be lucky enough to get multiple offers, then I will be selective again :-)
