Sample Job Interview Letter

Posted in Interview Letters

A job interview letter is not a promise of a job, but it is the next best thing. This letter signifies that a hiring manager is interested in speaking with you based on your resume, an inquiry, or a personal recommendation. It is an offer to meet with the hiring manager, a team of managers, or some other person within the company who has the authority to recommend you for employment or for the next round of interviews.

Format and Content:
This type of letter is straightforward and to the point. The job letter interview format follows a logical progression. The first paragraph thanks the job candidate for sending in his or her resume and gives the hiring company’s initial impression of the candidate based on the resume. The second paragraph provides interview details, such as the name of the interviewer and the time and location of the interview. The third paragraph denotes special instructions, such as how and when to respond to the request. The fourth paragraph contains contact information.


This job interview letter sample is written by a member of the Human Resources staff on the behalf of the hiring manager. The letter informs the job candidate she has been selected for the job interview. It provides the applicant with detailed instructions on how to confirm the interview, where to report for the interview and the name of the interviewer. In this sample, the candidate must go online to the company’s website to confirm and schedule a time for the appointment.
