Responding to open job applications is very important for building a successful Candidate Relationship Management strategy and building high-quality talent pools.

Even when you don't have job opening for positions job seekers are interested in, you should respond to their application. You never know, they may be the perfect candidates for some of your future job openings.

Responding to open job applications should be done in a timely manner to ensure positive candidate experience. You could set it up to go automatically saying that you will get in touch after reviewing, or you could take 2-3 days to review and answer based on your needs.
