There is no need to take a rejection personally, it often has nothing to do with your profile, personality, so it's not your failure to get the interview. Try to convey the message that the candidate should not think too much of this rejection, this decision is rarely based solely on the profile or performance. There are many reasons why an interview will not take place, for example, that there was already a preferred candidate that is known to the company, but they need to follow official protocol and there is little that you could have done.
