A little effort goes a long way in creating a strong network of loyal candidates. If you interview a candidate for a job – regardless of whether they make the second cut or not – it can be beneficial to acknowledge that they took the time to speak with you and demonstrated interest in what you had to offer. Rejected candidates are often left hanging during the interview process and see their requests for follow-up information go unaddressed. It can damage their confidence and sour them on the recruitment process altogether. Even if a candidate isn’t the right fit for a particular job, they could be a fit down the line. Keeping the lines of communication open and sending a courtesy email closing the loop on the original opportunity will go a long way in turning people who were once job seekers into powerful advocates for your business.
