Follow-up E-mail for Confirming Interview
HR recommends sending email communication to all candidates who have been scheduled for an interview (phone or in-
person) as a follow up to the verbal arrangements. The following checklist will assist you in providing all of the pertinent
information to help the candidate prepare for the interview.
Situation: Confirmation email for a phone interview:
Greet the candidate.
Include opening paragraph that states the purpose of the e-mail.
o Reference any documents for the candidate’s review. (UK HR Employment best practice: Attach the
position’s job summary and the “Exceptional Benefits” document.)
State the position title for which the candidate will be interviewing.
Provide interview details:
o When the interview will occur (date & time)
o Where you will contact the candidate (confirm candidate’s phone number)
o Who will be involved in the interview (names & titles of interviewers)
Close the e-mail by providing the candidate with your contact information.
