Great! You have received a job interview invitation in your inbox. Although it is not a job offer yet, it is a great sign. Responding to a job interview email is crucial. Why? Because it is your first communication with your prospective company and you definitely want to impress them. Make sure your email response shows a positive light before your interview. From receiving your first interview request, each interaction you have with your potential employer has an influence on your application.

  • reply as early as you can
  • thanking the sender for the invitation
  • don’t include multiple people in the email
  • keep it short and professional
  • avoid emoji, slang and abbreviation
  • proofread your email and check for grammatical errors
