According to the article “Tips for giving rejected candidates feedback,” published on the HR-specialized webpage TalentAdore (link below), aspects such as a candidate’s appearance or voice are things they cannot change. Therefore, any feedback on these would be irrelevant. As a matter of fact, they can even be dangerous.
As important as your personal feelings about the candidate are, they can be biased and perceived as such. This may potentially lead to legal issues, which you definitely want to avoid.
Now, you may feel like I’ve presented you with a Catch-22: you have to be specific, but if you do, you might get into hot water. Well, fret not thyself, for I have the solution. Go to the next seed and find out.
