Rejection letters, or letters of rejection, are written for a variety of different situations. Probably the most common rejection letter is one that advises a job applicant that they were not successful in their application for a job. Rejection letters should be short and factual and should avoid getting into detailed explanations as to why the applicant was unsuccessful. Instead, they can include a follow-up contact number should the applicant require more details.

Dear Mr. Morrison:

Re: Head of Security, Davidson Industries Inc., Washington, D.C.

I regret to inform you that your recent application for the Head of Security position at Davidson Industries was unsuccessful.

Although you met all of the mandatory minimum qualifications for the position, the Interview Board chose a candidate with considerably more experience than you currently possess. The chairperson of the Board asked me to convey to you his thanks for your candidacy and to tell you that with a few more years of diversified experience in the field you might well have been the successful candidate.

On behalf of Davidson Industries I thank you for your interest and effort, and I wish you all the best in your future career endeavors.

Please don't hesitate to contact me at 342-9856 should you require further information.
