How to Provide a Quality Candidate Experience for Non-Selected Candidates

Every interaction that a candidate has with your company is impactful, perhaps none more than when they receive the dreaded rejection notification. How you handle this situation will not only determine if they apply again, but can also impact what they tell their network about your company and potentially if they purchase your products or services. Candidate resentment can negatively impact a company’s bottom line.

In this workshop we will cover how to reject candidates with professionalism and empathy at every stage of the hiring process from initial application to final interview. While no candidate enjoys being rejected, if done correctly, they will leave with a positive impression of your company.


  • Learn what method of communication to use at each stage of the process
  • Understand what role the hiring manager plays in the rejection process
  • Guidance on what to say to candidates when notifying them that they have been rejected
  • Tips on to provide a quality candidate experience to reject candidates
