Employee rejection letter template

June 17, 2011

This template can be used to guide companies willing to inform job applicants that they will not be offered the jobs they had applied for. In a good employee rejection letter, the company informs the applicant that he/she did not meet the qualifications for the job and that the best candidate was offered the job. The employer expresses empathy for the applicant and encourages him/her to consider applying for other vacancies that may come up in future.
