The phone interview email is a communication from the employer to the candidates in which they are invited to phone interviews. Most firms today have staff working from home or in remote areas, which necessitates conducting phone interviews.

The email invitation is sent to applicants to notify them that they have passed the preliminary screening and that the firm is eager to interview them.

Schedule a phone interview using this email template with your most potential applications and candidates.

Send the following email to get started:

  • Interview date and time
  • Estimated runtime
  • Interviewer name(s) and job title(s)
  • Interview format and topic
  • Create a clear subject line so applicants will open your mail
  • Keep your email short and to the point, highlighting the time and date you have planned with the right time zone listing
