I am working as an Executive HR in a private Co at Bangalore for the past 1 year. I am taking care of all the recruitments. After the interview is over, i will tell the candidates that "we will call you back". If the candidate is not good or not suitable, how to tell him that he is not selected in a polite way without hurting him. Please suggest i am waiting for your replies...
:) Thanks & Regards,
It is better for any HR person to keep in touch and build the database we don't know when the opportunity arises and that particular candidate may be a right fit for the current requirement hence in my opinion you can say thanks to the candidate and say that some more candidates are required to be interviewed and will communicate with in a week or so. A mail to his ID won't costs much and at the same time it shows the maturity, caring culture and dignity of the organization hence better to hold the decision even he is not suitable and send an email in a weeks time saying that his candidature is not considered for the position and will consider for some other position when opportunity arises. This makes sense and gives lot of satisfaction to the individual and creates lot of respect towards the organization or else you can a regret letter also.

Do call the candidate and say " Having evaluated your candidature w.r.t the role we are looking for the interviewing panel feels that you______________________(cite reasons) like junior for the post, limited exposure, do not possess the requisite skillsets, communications skills, aggresiveness etc.
Also, tell him that we will keep the CV in your databse and touch base with him in case of any future relevant requirement.. Also, wish him all the best and tell him to stay in touch.
We discussed over the same topic a couple of months back. There are a good number of suggestions. Chk the link below.
Do You Send Rejection Letters To Applicants?
If you can spare a few mins, you can search for more links and find better ones too!
I feel as HR persons we should always let the candidate know about where he/she stands in terms of their candidature and if they r selected why so n if rejected why, it does not take much time hardly 2- 3 mins and candidate really feel very good abt the feedback..
most of the time we donít tell them that they r rejected coz we feel sorry for the candidate but giving him a straight insight about his/her selection will actually release him from anxious wait at that moment it self and he/ she would know where they stand and what steps they need to take to improve..
so we should always inform them at that day itself about their selection status they would really feel good about it
