How to write an interview rejection letter
Below is a sample letter where a job applicant has not been successful at securing an interview. This type of letter is sometimes called an interview rejection letter or a turn down letter. No one likes receiving these types of letters so the writer must choose their words carefully so as not to hurt the receiver. Many Human Resources or Recruitment departments have templates that they use for this type of letter. They just enter a few details and the letter is ready in seconds. The one below is quite general so it can be changed to address a variety of situations. The content can be modified by changing the names, dates, career path mentioned and so on.

Dear Fina Foster
Re: Job Application
Thank you for applying for the position of Junior Analyst in the department of Equipment Finance.
We have completed reviewing all the applications that we received and are now compiling a list of candidates whom we are going to interview in the coming few weeks. These are the applicants whom we feel are most suitable and appropriate for the position. Even though we received over 300 applications, we are only able to take on five people.
Unfortunately, we are not able to meet personally with every candidate, and we regret to inform you that you were not among the group of candidates selected to proceed to the next stage of interviews. If for some reason we are not successful in filling the positions during this process, your application may be considered again.
In the meantime, I want to thank you for your interest in this position and hope that you will be able to find a suitable position elsewhere. If you are interested in finding out about our company's other job opportunities and openings, feel free to visit our website at OnlineJobWatch.com or call our recruitment hotline at 253-254 2566.
I wish you success in your search.
