It’s not easy when you think you’ve done everything right and nothing else lives up to its end of the bargain.
But there’s more than one way to deal with real world rejection and, according to Tina Mercado, a formerly professionally frustrated Lexington native, happiness may be only a bunny hop, skip and a jump away.
Bummed by months of job-searching after her May graduation from Georgetown with an MBA in business administration, Mercado struggled to deal with rejection until she started looking at things through the cartoonish eyes of a bunny.
As she progressed through the job-search, Mercado jotted down her experiences and began writing and illustrating what turned into “You Can Do It, Bunny, Tales of a Young Animal’s Job-Hunting Adventures.”
