Job Interview Rejection Letter

  • By | Comments Off

    Writing a job interview rejection letter is a less pleasant experience as the purpose is to notify an application or candidate after the interview that he or she did not get the job.

    The interview rejection letter to the candidates who were not selected for the job is an extra but positive step to build good will with candidates.

    A letter of rejection following a job interview should include a positive opening that compliment the candidate.

    As an employer, it is recommended not to give reasons or details about the decision of rejection. Be brief and get straight to the point in your rejection letter with respect on the candidate’s feeling.

    Express a sincere thank you for his interest in the company and wish him a good luck for job search in the future.
