How to Cut Your Engineering Candidate Drop-off in Half with Autoresponders

By Casey Higgins

This guide has email templates for every interview stage.

You forgot to send that follow-up email to an engineering candidate. Now they think you’re ghosting them and they’ve moved on.

There are a number of reasons why candidates drop off, but one of the most common is a lack of communication. Candidates get anxious when they don’t hear back from you. And that anxiety turns into frustration.

The solution is simple: autoresponders.

Automated emails keep experienced engineering candidates in the loop about what to expect, which reduces anxiety and increases the likelihood that they’ll complete the process. They also save you time; set ’em up once and forget about them.

We created email templates you can send from your ATS before specific interview stages. It’s easy, just copy and paste.
