What should I include in a rejection email?
The recruitment stage always requires filtration (that is why, SELECTION exists!). Be it, a Multinational Company or even, a start-up, every organisation receives many applications at the stage of recruitment.
Some ways to write a better rejection mail:
- Appreciate the effort of the candidate.
- A “thank you”
- Invitation to apply again
Example rejection email for applications who are a good fit
Thank you so much for your interest in the Sales Manager position with XYZ Company. We appreciate you taking the time to visit our offices and interview with our team.
At this time, we have chosen to proceed with another candidate who has more leadership experience. However, we were impressed with your background and industry knowledge and feel you would be a great culture fit for our company.
We will be posting a few sales positions in the coming weeks, and hope you’ll consider applying again. Otherwise, we wish you the best of luck in your career endeavors.
Executive Director of Sales
