Thanks, but No Thanks
Thanks, but no thanks!
Even though you may think the interview was awesome, the company you wanted to join may send you a rejection email. It doesn’t feel great to get the “thanks for your interest, but we’ve decided to go with someone else” email.
Don’t let this rejection get you down!
♦ Use this opportunity to your advantage by sending a response like:
Thank you again for the opportunity to meet with you and your team! I learned so much about your organization and would welcome the opportunity to work with you in the future.
Please keep me in mind for other opportunities at XYZ company. I’ve sent you a connection request on LinkedIn so that we can stay in touch.
♦ Don’t miss the opportunity of sending a final gracious message to differentiate yourself from your competition. Sometimes the chosen candidate falls through or another position opens up, and a positive last impression can work in your favor.
♦ Remember to stay in touch with your contacts at the company by periodically sharing relevant content with the team so that you will be remembered when that perfect opportunity becomes available.
♦ Contact me to discuss ways to optimize and leverage your LinkedIn Profile.
It is a powerhouse of opportunity!
Stay memorable, stay top of mind, and stay connected.
With warm regards, Mindy
