9 GIFs That Perfectly Sum Up What Happens When a Candidate Rejects Your Offer

If there’s anything that the contestants on The Bachelor franchise have proven time and again, it’s that rejection can not only blindside you…but also straight-up feel like a punch in the face.

And recruiters and employers like you are no different when rejected. When your strongest candidate rejects your offer, you experience a flood of emotions, and then you go through the following phases…

First, you test them to see if they’re truly serious about saying “no”…

Then you go into a brief state of denial…

Once you realise you have to face reality, you experience a healthy amount of anger…

You tell the candidate to keep in touch, but you know that won’t happen…

Nevertheless, you mourn the end of an era and realise you have to stay strong and move on…

And just like that, you are ready to start searching again…
