Candidates complain about slow communication, lack of responses, and generally, mismanaged expectations. When you consider how many processes a recruiter is managing at any given point, it’s no wonder that good communication practices are left by the wayside. For those managing a high volume of vacancies, recruiting email templates can be a powerful tool to keep your candidate communication in check and help you attract better talent.
