Kindness in Business: How to send those “sorry, you didn’t get the job” letters with more heart.

By |2021-12-22T19:24:42+00:00March 29, 2018|Business Growth, Human Resources|

This summer, many employers will be screening students for positions -- receiving many resumes, hiring the right person only and having to send the "sorry, you didn't get it" letter.  This is the exact letter I sent out to students who applied for one of our summer positions, once I found the right person. My approach? Be kind, tell them the way I would've liked to be told, and encourage them to keep going with their chin up.  I hope this can inspire you to create kind-hearted communication tools in your hiring process! warmly, Anne-Sophie Marketing Manager, Dowtown Victoria Business Association
