…To Another Candidate Pt. 1

“As you know, we interviewed a number of candidates for the position and it was a tough decision, but we have decided to offer the position to another candidate.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come in and meet the team. As we continue to grow it is likely we will have another position open up and if you would like we will keep you in mind. Would that be something you are interested in?

I wish you luck with your continued job search and hope we can find a spot for you at our company in the future.

Thank you,
Tim”

Your résumé stood out.

You were selected for a phone interview.

You got called for an in-person interview.

You followed up with a thank you note (via email) after the interview.

You got called for a second interview.

And…

You didn’t get the job.

You researched the company, asked the right questions (and there are right questions to ask).

You smiled, you were friendly, you used the right anecdotal regarding your experience.

But was still passed up…
