Phone interviews are a great way to get a feel for a candidate’s background, personality and enthusiasm for your open role. Plus, they’ll make the actual face-to-face interview that much easier.
Send this email to set up:
- Date and time of the interview
- Estimated duration
- Name(s) and job title(s) of the interviewer(s)
- Format and topic of the interview
Write a clear subject line so candidates will open your message. Aim to keep your email brief and highlight the time and date you have scheduled with the correct time zone listing.

Subject line: We’d love to set up a phone interview – [Company_name] / Phone interview with [Company_name] for the [Job_title] position
My name is [your name] and I’m a recruiter/the hiring manager with [Company_name] . Your application stood out and I would like to set up a time to chat about [Job_title] role over the phone.
This is a great chance to tell you more about [Company_name] and get to know you a bit better.
Would you be available for a short introductory phone call [give a specific timeframe – like, early next week]?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
