What To Do With Your
Employment Rejection Letter!

employment rejection letter

We all know how disappointing it is to get an employment rejection letter, especially after all the effort you've put in. But it's not the end of the world.


Remember -- there are always more candidates than jobs, so if you got as far as an interview, you should congratulate yourself on getting to that stage. Most don't.

If you did not get an interview, please review the rest of this website, by using the navigation bar to the left.

If you did get an interview but werenÂ’t chosen for the position, turn the experience into something positive. Here's how:

Reply To Your Interview Rejection Letter

If asked, a lot of companies will provide feedback which will help you at your next job interview.

Personally contact the person who interviewed you by letter, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope. Thank them for giving you the job interview, express your disappointment at not getting the job and invite them to give you feedback so that you can improve your chances of being successful next time.

When you get the feedback:

  • Decide what you have learned from the job interview experience
  • Look at areas of weakness and decide what you'll do differently next time
  • Make a commitment to do something and put these actions into some form of development plan
  • Review ALL the advice we've given.

If you do this, you can turn receiving an interview rejection letter into something positive.

Don't give up.

Work on those areas that let you down and be ready to do better next time.
