Sending a Job Application Received Mail to candidates who apply for an open position at your company can go a long way in improving the candidate experience. Improving candidate experience is especially important if you want to build your employer brand.
The Job Application Received Mail can also contain information related to the further steps of the hiring process and how the candidate should prepare for it. You can also provide them with a timeframe of when they will be hearing from you again. These can help set up the expectations of the candidates and avoid poor communication.
Here is a template you can use.
