Dear Mr. Parker,
This email is pertaining to the job application which we received for the post of IT analyst on May 1, 2013. On behalf of ABC Enterprises, I regret to inform you that your application was declined by our hiring team.
There were a number of different factors which contributed towards this decision. Primarily, we received a number of resumes from other candidates who were more eligible for the post of IT analyst. Furthermore, your expected monthly salary was more than the budget estimated by our Accounts Department for this post.
However, the hiring panel at ABC Enterprises does appreciate your interest to work with the company. For this reason, we will consider as a candidate for other job opportunities related to your field of expertise that may open in future.
We wish you the best of luck in your search for a good employment.
