Where did you take your training? That makes a HUGE difference. Notary2Pro is the most extensive training, and they have a list of companies that accept their certification when you graduate, included also is mentoring. No other program offers what N2P offers. You don't "apply" to companies, you contact and offer your services. What do you mean by rejections? They don't accept your certification? It is VERY slow now, interest rates are climbing and refi's are fewer to be found. The best bet is to get very familiar with Purchase closing docs and contact local title companies and realtors (they can, and do, request specific notaries they like to work with). If your area is saturated, you will get even less calls. Advertise for GNW, (get familiar with your state laws for POAs, wills, etc.) which some make a great living just doing that.... especially if you have a place the client can come to you or contacts with local senior citizen homes. Always have a backup income plan. N2P also has a page for graduates that has training for other areas of income. Hope this helps.
