Don’t Leave Them Hanging!

An open letter to all the HR Managers and Recruiters :

I hope you all are doing well.

I want to thank a lot of you for helping me in different phases of my career.

I remember, back in 2014, a recruiter went through my resume and suggested constructive changes which helped me in landing a job.

Then in 2016, when I was down with self-doubts, a recruiter helped me in sorting out my options and dared me to go outside my comfort zone.

I will forever be thankful to both of them.

However, there was something inside me for a long time and after my latest experience, I just couldn’t keep it inside anymore.


I need not express the plight of any candidate during his job search. Every call seems to the call, and every opportunity seems to be an answer to all the prayers.

In such a condition, when he/she successfully clears the initial rounds, assignments, and interviews, it’s very hard to move on without a closure.

A constructive feedback would be the icing on the cake, but leaving him/her hanging is not the right thing.

“He would get it on his own” should not be the norm.

I know it would seem irrelevant to spend 5 minutes on a rejected candidate, but it would surely help him to move on.

– On behalf of all the candidates
