What is a Job Candidate?
A Job Candidate is an individual who has applied for a job and is in the running to be considered for the position.
Job Candidates take the time to fill out your application, learn about your organization, and maybe even email or call to follow-up after an interview. It's important to reciprocate the interest and make them feel appreciated. Even if your decide to hire one candidate over another, be sure to send an email or rejection letter. That lets them know that you appreciate their time and you are hopeful for their future business.
Applicant Tracking Systems provide easy contact to Job Candidates.
Rejection letters provide closure for your applicants and can encourage them to apply again. Our Applicant Tracking System provide a professional, customizable rejection letter template that can be mass emailed out to those not selected directly within the applicant tracking system.
