How to send automatic disqualification email to applicants?
Sometimes, companies require specific skills and qualifications without which a person can not perform his or her job duties.
In order to fasten your selection process and make it more streamlined, you can include these skills or requirements in your application form. Some of the examples include: VISA (permission to work in that country, drivers license, English language etc.)
In case that applicants do not meet one or more of your must-have skills, you can automatically disqualify them through your ATS, and let them know through email automation.
Automated disqualification emails should be use only in these circumstances as non-human friendly, automated emails are not a good way for providing high-quality candidate experience. That being said, even these emails should be as personalised as possible.
