10 Tweets Showing the Effects of Job Rejection

Did you know that 83 percent of candidates say that a negative candidate experience can change their mind about a role or company they may have once liked? Even worse - 18 percent of candidates will stop using products or services from that same company.

Most of us have been through it before (maybe some of us more than others). You apply for a position that seems like an awesome fit, and you wait for the magic to happen. Except, a few weeks later, you get that infamous rejection email. No matter who you are, rejection hurts.

What’s even more clear to see is that candidates are spreading the message about their experiences with companies on social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Let’s take a look at ten tweets that show the negative effects of job rejection.

Moral of the story? The way you reject candidates throughout the recruiting and interviewing process matters. It's quite easy to globally spread the message when candidates have a negative or positive experience, so make sure that when you are saying, "no," it's the right way.
