Reasons for Rejection

Many of us have had o face rejection at different interviews at different stages of our career. Well, here we will explore the same with a few examples.

Latha has been eagerly waiting to hear from the company that she applied for. It has been more than two weeks and there is no reply. She started wondering if her resume has been rejected and if so, why.

Sudhakar was very happy when he received a call informing him that his resume got shortlisted and he was required to attend a personal interview. It has been more than three weeks and there is neither a call nor any mail from the company. He thought he did well in the interview; what could be the reasons for him to get rejected?

rejectionIt is a common behavior to curiously know the status of one’s candidature. It is also common that every time you apply or attend an interview, the result may not be positive. In case the candidature is rejected, candidates always like to know the reasons for rejection.

Occasionally, one may come across companies that give a feedback (though not in detail) at the end of the selection process; but mostly, one doesn’t get to hear or expect a polite mail or letter declining the candidature. The whole experience leaves the candidate wondering what would have gone wrong. Knowing the most likely reasons for rejecting a candidature will help you to take enough and avoid as many mistakes as possible during the next attempt.

Broadly, rejection can take place at three stages:

1. Rejection of the resume

2. Rejection during the pre-interview stage

3. Rejection after the personal interview

 Let us understand the likely reasons for rejection at each of these stages in our next blogs.
