If a candidate is not selected that doesn’t means he is rejected at some cases. These may be few reasons like over qualified, highly competent and high salary expectation for the position. So we should never dishearten if we are not selected by the organization. I am sharing of my personal experience as hiring personnel for the organization.

Hi Shaikh,
Yes you are right.
However, it is good practice to write to the rejected candidate giving them good feedback, so that they understand the rejection.
I always end my letters of rejection by inviting them to contact me should they require further details.
This gives a good positive impression and leaves the door open for the future after all today's rejection might be tomorrows hire !!

I echo Loknath and Harsh on this note.
There is a magic term too often used during hiring called 'Fitment Issue' . It doesn't claim a candidate to be bad but a misfit .
This is entirely non-negetive and have nothing to do with anyone in isolation.
However,its important to maintain a transparency ,as the candidate who couldn't be hired today, might be hired tomorrow. Hence, the communication needs to be set right.

Hello (Cite Contribution),
Greetings of the day!
Thanks for your valuable reply. I believe I am interacting with you after one year. Yes, communication should be clear and transparent. Candidates should be kept well informed.
