Rejection email after the interview

It's never pleasant to send this email to anybody. People disguise it by sending a generic, pre-defined email that's politically correct. But, we believe we can do a better job by being genuine and by sharing actionable feedback to the candidate... if there is one of course.

Rejection email after the interview

Why did it work?

1. Don't copy/paste soulless sentences

Give candidates more than just a generic email. It's way more human, it sets you apart as company that actually cares and you might help that candidate feel a tiny bit less disappointed, as well as encourage them to apply again in the future.

2.  Go the extra mile and give feedback

If there's a reason why they didn't pass or you can show them how they could have done their case study better, teach them. Give them advice for future. Take the time to write it. Set a standard and walk it like you talk it.
