Attracting the right employees is essential to growing your business. However, during the application process, you will come across a number of candidates who don't fit the position you're trying to fill. You should still contact these people with a professional and courteous letter and let them know that their application has been rejected. In doing so, your company will show consideration for its applicants, establishing a tone of mutual respect and laying the foundation for potential future business relationships. Inappropriate behavior, whether by thoughtless letters or ignored applications, will only hurt your business. A well-constructed rejection letter allows you to continue to attract the right candidates and customers, thereby maintaining your business' marketplace reputation. Use LegalZoom's Applicant Rejection Letter to politely inform a candidate that he or she will not be working with you at this time.
