Telling someone that they didn’t get the job is not an easy thing to do. Philip helps Marcia to word the rejection letter in a suitable way. Here are a few things you should do in a rejection letter.

•    Address the candidate by name.
•    Thank the candidate for the time, effort and interest in the company.
•    Write a supportive sentence about the candidate's qualifications, experience or, at very least, enthusiasm or motivation.
•    Make it clear that the reason you didn't hire the candidate was because you found someone else with better qualifications and experience.
•    Offer some feedback on how they could improve their interview performance.
•    Wish the candidate good luck in his or her career development.
•    Close the letter formally with "sincerely" or "best wishes."
•    Sign your name, including your title.
