Hi *,

Thank you for taking the time to speak with us about opportunities at Yelp.

We've been fortunate to have many talented and qualified candidates express their interest in joining the Yelp team. At this time, we've decided to continue the process with other candidates who are a stronger fit for this particular role.

This is never an easy decision or one we take lightly. We really do appreciate your interest and hope that you'll keep us in mind for the future. We're always open to reconsidering you after about a year or so has passed, so please reconsider us for future opportunities.

Hi ***,

Thanks so much for your interest in Everlane. We received a number of applications for this role and have decided to move forward with another group of candidates at this time.

We will keep your information on file as the team continues to grow. Until then, best in your search.

Thank you,

Hey ****,

My name is **** and I'm part of the Talent Acquisition team here at Shopify. I've just had a chance to review your application. Thanks so much for your interest in Shopify.

It's been my job to look through every one's experience and try to match it to what we're looking for across our engineering team. Unfortunately, we have decided to move forward with some other candidates at this point, and so we won't be inviting you in for an interview this time.

Matching people to jobs is a complicated process, and it's made more complicated by the overwhelmingly qualified group of candidates we hear from everyday. Unfortunately, I don't have any concrete feedback to share with you at this point, except to encourage you to continue to check out our careers page -- we are always adding new roles to the team.

I've spent some time thinking about other roles that your experience might be a fit for, and I don't see any obvious matches at the moment. That being said, nobody has a better understanding of your experience and what you're capable of than you do. If you do see another role that you're interested in, feel free to apply and tell us why you think your experience is relevant.

Thanks again so much for your time, effort, and interest 🙏

We would, though, like to keep your application on file as new positions open that may be a better fit.

Hi *****,

Thanks so much for your interest in Glitch. We really appreciated you taking the time to apply for this position and have given careful consideration to your application.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer you a position at this time.

You should know that we receive a very large number of applicants for every open position that we list, and that requires us to make difficult decisions about who to hire, including sometimes not being able to make an offer to very talented people.

We thank you for considering us as part of your career, and wish the best of luck to you in your career search going forward. We’d also welcome you to keep following our career listings in the future and please don’t hesitate to apply again if one of those positions is an appropriate fit.

Due to the number of applicants we talk to, we don’t give individual feedback to candidates who don’t advance in our hiring process, but if you have other questions about Glitch, we’re happy to answer them.

Thank you,
