Automatic, standard with applicant tracking systems (ATS), and easy to set up. Yet, sometimes this is an overlooked feature; especially with teams new to ATS software. Communication with candidates is key to maintaining a positive relationship with the public; even if you are delivering disappointing news to some.
When purchasing an item online, the standard etiquette includes receiving a confirmation email. Money is involved and a transaction took place. Yet, it also confirms that everything went smoothly, and that the ball is now in the company’s court to fulfill the next task.
Although filling out a job application doesn’t involve money spent, it involves money (that can potentially) be earned. Candidates actively looking for work take this very seriously. It is so important to acknowledge their time and effort, and confirm they successfully applied for a position.
