What is an Employment Rejection Letter?

After interviewing several candidates, your company has decided to hire a new employee. Help out the candidates you didn't choose by sending an Employment Rejection Letter, so they know to move on to other opportunities. 
A good employer will send an Employment Rejection Letter to candidates interviewed but not hired for an open position. The Letter thanks the candidate for their interest in the company, and lets them know they weren't selected. It's good business practice to send out an Employment Rejection Letter, because the candidate spent time and effort in applying and interviewing for the position. A timely Rejection Letter and a thank you can go a long way in cultivating your company's reputation as professional and courteous. The Letter also serves as the closing step in your business' recruitment process.

When to use an Employment Rejection Letter:

  • You are an Employer and you would like to send a letter notifying an applicant that he or she was not selected for the job opening.
