Companies may send candidate rejection letters to applicants that are not selected for a position. However, in many cases, employers don't notify candidates that haven't been chosen, so don't expect to be notified if you aren't going to receive a job offer.

If a company does send rejection letters, the following is an example of what you may receive.
