I appreciate the opportunity to interview you and compare your skill set to the other candidates currently in consideration for our open technical management position. Please understand that I meant no disrespect or connotation of ill will when I stated that a background check is part of our employment screening process and typically adds a week’s delay to process. This is a statement I provide every candidate with whom I interview, and it is not intended to imply any historic wrongdoing on your part.
Understanding the challenges being experienced by many, I apologize if the mere mention of a background check was any cause for concern.
Very truly yours,
