Rejection mining is a personal story of a foreign student of design experiencing a hard time finding a design related job in Helsinki, Finland.
This project is a compilation of 47 rejection letters, which was presented in a form of an installation during the Media Lab’s, 2015 Spring Demo Day.
Furthermore, the idea was later developed into an initiative by conducting company visits. An act that would bridge between, the student and the companies.
Starting from January 2016 as part of the Media Lab Student Association, DADA, over 30 company visits have been conducted.
