A Good Introduction Of Your Brand 

A candidate may come from various channels, like social media, individual blogs, or employee referrals. Whatever the sources, a good introduction of your company with its style and tone aligning with the employer brand, along with the perks will always get them interested.  

A Personal Touch 

Cold machine generated mails which are blasted out without a personal touch usually wears out and are pushed to spam. If possible, mentioning past interactions such as previous interview processes with new expectations and ending with a specific request renders to be effective. 

Short And Direct 

A short, informative and to the point sentence increases the chance of a busy candidate reading it. It must include crucial details of the next task to be done with a clear objective. 

Don’t  Keep Them Dangling 

Interviews can be nerve-racking, therefore a detailed confirmation email must include basic attributes, like the time and duration, including the names of all interviewers to reach out to for any queries, and anything the candidate needs to prepare or bring before the interview process begins. 

Proof Reading Matters 

Chances of sending grammatically incorrect emails with silly typos popping up are high, it might reflect badly on your company too. You might need to double check all the candidate details and the relevant interview information before you press send. No one likes it when they are confused with someone else.  

Reminders Help 

“Fortunate are those who forget” is a saying many strive to implement, but NOT in this case. Sending out friendly interview email reminders a day before the actual interview, which repeats the essential details is a reliable way of reminding the candidates of the important tasks of the day.
