Chop Chop Curry Pok Email Responses To Candidates

Have you ever been so swarmed with work that you would find yourself forgetting to reply to emails? Or maybe having too many brain farts lately that leave you stumped on even writing them? Well, that’s no excuse!

When you make an effort to build a transparent and regular communication with your talents, it makes them feel appreciated and it reflects well on your employer brand. Ultimately, improving the overall candidate experience. That’s right, it’s that simple!

Here are our most essential situations on when you need to touch base with your talents that most Hiring Managers conveniently forget:

  1. When you’ve received their applications and are reviewing it
  2. When there is a delay in the hiring process
  3. When the talent is no longer under consideration

If you’re looking for a fast solution (and extra oomph) to your email replies, look no further, for we have brought together four email templates every Hiring Manager should have handy at all times.
