Do you sometimes feel like scheduling interviews with candidates can be a hassle sometimes? Well, you’re not alone.

Especially when you have hundreds of open vacancies, and scheduling interviews starts to feel like an email tag game.

Finding a time that is convenient for both candidates and interviewers can sometimes take days, if not weeks.

So, how can recruiters streamline the process?

Through a hiring platform!

A hiring platform ultimately eliminates routine tasks, delivers a personalized experience, automates interview scheduling, and streamlines the hiring process for both candidates and recruiters alike.

To arrange or confirm job interviews with candidates through a hiring platform, use the following interview confirmation email template.

What should you include in an interview confirmation email?

Some hiring managers prefer to write their own interview confirmation email and then send it through a hiring platform – rather than using a previously prepared template. And there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, this personalizes the candidate experience!

With that in mind, we’re here to help you craft the best interview confirmation template in your very own hiring platform.

After agreeing on a date and time to schedule the interview with candidates, we advise you to send an interview confirmation email to confirm and clarify details such as:

  • Interview date and time
  • Estimated duration
  • Interviewer name(s) and job title(s)
  • How the interview will be conducted

You could also use this email to remind candidates to bring in their resumes, portfolios, degrees, or any other documents needed.

Tips and tricks to keep in mind

tips to follow while using a hiring platform to send an email

The interview confirmation email can be sent for the 1st, 2nd or 3rd interview.

So if this is the first interview with candidates at your office, you must include the following:

  • Directions on how to reach your office. Provide candidates with a link to a map or mention some landmarks nearby.
  • If the interview will be conducted online, specify whether it will be using an automated video interviewing software or a regular face-to-face video interview.

Keep the email brief, with all necessary information communicated clearly. If your subject line is misleading, candidates may reject and ignore your message.

If the interview was scheduled a while ago, send this interview confirmation email through the hiring platform one to two days before the scheduled interview. It will serve as a helpful reminder.

After you’ve discussed your availability by email or phone, you might also use the following email to determine the agreed time and date for the interview.
