Sending a thank you note after receiving a job rejection is courteous and a great public relations move. The BOTTOM LINE Personal suggests how to approach this idea.”If you liked the organization and want to be considered for a future opening, a thank you note after a rejection will set you apart from the other applicants.” The new employee might not work out, and the firm may reconsider other applicants…
“Your note should thank the company for letting you know of the outcome of the search…express your disappointment in not getting the job…repeat your interest in working there…and request that they contact you the next time a position is available.”
