Job interview reply letter samples, 2 example letters
Have you ever received a disappointing reply to a job interview that you attended? Now imagine having the responsibility to write a letter telling someone that their interview was unsuccessful. Letters delivering bad news are very hard to write. Many companies have standard templates which they simply customise and use. Here are two sample reply letters for sending to people who have not been successful at job interviews. These types of letters can be changed depending on the career and the content of the interview. Sometimes companies just send a simple one-paragraph letter saying the candidate’s job application has not been successful.
