Polite rejection

Rather than send rejection mail directly to unsuccessful employees, the agency can arrange with the employer to handle this correspondence and dispatch in convenient times when the bad news isn't likely to hurt them. Additionally, the agency may be allowed to re-word this mail with the purpose of maintaining a good public image of the employer.

Such records may prove useful at a later date when another employer looks for workers in a similar field. This will also avail the agency with a ready record of applicants who have failed severally in interviews. As such, they may later opt to emit these names from recommendation lists offered to recruiters. The agency can also avail these records to open scrutiny of employers who at a later date may tell at an instant that the applicant has applied with them before
