Recently, my company put a job posting out on Monster.com. We’ve made our decision about who to hire, and I’ve got the lovely job of writing the rejection letters. One will, of course go to everyone we interviewed. My question is, should I send one to everyone who sent in a resume through Monster? Some of these people were completely unsuited for the job, with no experience in the areas we said were required. When I’ve looked for jobs, I haven’t necessarily expected rejection letters from jobs I applied for on-line, but I did them when I got them.
What do you folks think? Should I make a note of every application we received through Monster and send out rejection letters to all of them, or only those we contacted after we received their resumes?
Thanks for the advice.
