How to Reject Job Candidates Kindly

  1. You just interviewed Bob.
  2. Bob wasn't that good, and now you have to send him a rejection letter.
  3. "Unfortunately, you didn't meet our requirements.....blah...blah....blah."

"BAM SON WHY DO I SUCK SO MUCH? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Bob asks himself.

He feels bad for the the next two weeks, unmotivated, with zero self-esteem, and lying on his bed playing with himself.

How do you reject job candidates?

You can certainly give him the brutal truth, or you can try it in a more subtle way that even increases his confidence.

WUT WUT.

Try this:

  • "You are overqualified for the position."

And then sprinkle in the constructive feedback by turning the negative things you perceived into positive things:

  • "This position is really simple, and I feel that your strong personality would get bored of it very quickly."

You start increasing his sense of self-worth, keep up his confidence, and let him tackle other job positions like a freak-on-a-^^@^-leash.

(You also don't burn any bridges with Bob and his network.)

Make yourself suck more to make him feel better.

Increase self-worth.
