I am a new supervisor (2 months in) and I am already going through my first hiring process, so I'm learning as I go!
I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on the best way to contact unsuccessful applicants after an interview? I had originally planned on doing a phone call, but I am also considering the pros and cons of sending an email. The reason that I'm considering email is because that would be how I would personally prefer to be notified if I were not successful after an interview. I feel that an email would allow the applicant time to digest the information and respond on their own time. However, I also want the opportunity to give the unsuccessful candidates feedback on their interview (if they desire), which may be easier to do over the phone.
Any thoughts? What has worked well for you?
