Candidate engagement is key to attract top candidates and to keep them around while your recruitment process unfolds. Hence, there are some important aspects we encourage you to keep in mind when communicating with candidates that have applied for a job at your company.
Check our tips to create a great emailing system and make sure your recruiting emails are effective:
Instead of drafting a series of loose email messages start by assessing your recruitment process and determine every touch point with your candidates. Once you make a list of every email message you’ll need to send candidates, set the context and the mission of each email.
Now that you know which emails will be sent at every stage of your recruitment process you can take care of the content. Having in mind the context and mission of each email, try to create a message that provides the necessary information but in a thoughtful way.
Using variables helps you personalise the email message, but if its content is too much formal and distant, candidates won’t feel the so much desired human touch. Even when it comes to application rejection emails, you can inform candidates in a warm and friendly way. Thank them for taking the time to apply and for being interested in your company. Let them know you wish them the best of luck in their job search.
In case you have more than one person writing your email messages make sure that they use your company’s style guide. It’s important to use the same voice, style and tone across every email message so that candidates don’t get confused and even suspicious due to different communication approaches.
