This email template can be used to inform past candidates about new job opportunities. Often times, employers have job openings for which some of the previous candidates may be a perfect fit. This is why talent pool building and candidates relationship building is extremely important. Not having to look for new candidates can significantly reduce your hiring process.
How to send a email to previous candidates about new job opportunity?
Often times, there are existing job candidates in our talent pools. When filling new positions, we should always strat from what we already have. If there are silver medallists that you didn't hire the first time, they may be your perfect candidates this time.
However, it is important to use the right approach to reach back to these people. Since they have already been rejected, you need to put some special effort in order to get positive responses from these emails.
If you already have a structured Candidate Relationship Management strategy in place, this process should be much easier.
Looking for high-quality candidates? With TalentLyft it has never been easier to find passive candidates, get their contact info, resumes, social media and professional profiles.
