Message template kit for your recruitment process

By

An eternal pain for professionals when applying for a job is not getting any news about the process. We ourselves can remember how many times we have sent our CVs in the hope of hearing from companies and we are left there, eternally waiting for a response that never comes... or when it does, it is too late.

And this pain is also felt by recruiters, who have to deal with hundreds of applications, which makes it an impossible task to respond to each one in a personalized way.

To ease that pain, in Get on Board you can create message templates to use in the different stages of your recruitment process, and, to help you even more in that, here are some examples that you can adapt for your own company and positions. 



Message Template Kit

The keywords @webpro and @job will be replaced with the name of each applicant and the job title, allowing you to use the same set of templates for different recruitment processes.

To create them:
Go to the Message Templates option in your left menu (or by clicking here) > New Template > Enter the title and message > Save and Close.


Create new template


The following template examples should be edited to make sense with your company's voice and tone. For each example, you will see a 'formal (A)' and an 'informal (B)' version.

Hello @webpro, 
We would like to let you know that we are still in the process of reviewing applications, a process that has taken longer than expected. That is why we ask for your patience. 
We understand that the wait can cause uncertainty and anxiety, so we apologize for that. We hope to get back to you as soon as possible with news about the process. 
Best regards,

{your_company_name} Team

Hi @webpro, How are you?
We know you're waiting for a response from our process (and we want to deliver), but the application review has taken us a little longer than budgeted, so I wanted to let you know that we haven't forgotten about you. 
We hope to get back to you soon with further updates on the process, but for now we ask for a little patience. 🙏🏽
Thank you very much for your understanding ❤️

Discard message 

A.  

Hello @webpro,
We want to thank you for taking the time to apply to our @job. Please be informed that we have decided to continue without your application, as there are some profiles that better fit the position we are looking for. 
The main reason is that this specific position requires skills such as [insert experience], which were not evident in your profile. 
However, we invite you to continue applying to future positions that we publish that better match your profile. 
Greetings, and best regards
{your_company_name} team



B. 

Hi @webpro,
I hope you are doing great. I am writing to inform you that we have decided to move forward with the process without your application, as other profiles were better suited to the position we are looking for. 
This specific position requires experience in [insert requirement], which we could not see in your application. However, we believe you have a lot of potential, and we invite you to continue applying in future processes that match your profile and experience. 
Best regards,
{your_name}
