When Employers Notify Candidates
Unfortunately, in many cases, you may never know definitively that your application was rejected by a company. Some employers do notify applicants that they were not selected, others do not. In some cases, it's because they receive hundreds of applications for every available job opening and they may not have an automated system or the resources to notify applicants.
Some job postings state that only candidates who are selected for interviews will be contacted. In other cases, you simply won't know if you'll hear back or not.
In addition, the hiring process can be lengthy with multiple interviews and the employer may not notify applicants until they have filled the job. That could take weeks or months, depending on the position within the company.
For candidates who are invited to interview, you may be notified by phone, email or by an automated messaging system if you applied via an applicant management system. [More]
