Simple Interview Request Email Template for Job Applications


The best method of inviting a candidate to an interview is over the telephone. After you have spoken to the applicant and arranged a time, then you can send a confirmation email with the location, date and time details. (Template also provided below.)

However, if you must email your application to request an interview, then we have provided a generic template below for you to use.


Email Template 1: Interview Request
