Document Summary

This letter is used by an employer to inform a candidate who has applied for a job, that currently, there are no vacancy.


As a job applicant, nothing is worse than hearing nothing from a prospective employer. Job applicants deserve a rejection.

Responding to all the job applicants is time-consuming but marks you as a desirable employer of choice and encourages a potential employee to apply again when you post another position for which the applicant may qualify.

This is a sample job applicant rejection letter which you can customize for the people you do not select for a job interview.

Note: Since many of these applications arrive via email, a job applicant rejection letter via email is acceptable.
