Received Resume Email

Writing a received resume email, you should be very precise and to the point. The email can contain information about confirmation of the receipt of the resume, along with the position that the candidate applied for.

In the opening paragraph, you can thank the candidate for showing their interest in a specific job post vacant in your company.

In the second paragraph, you can state that date when you will announce the names shortlisted by the company, or the time period required for the process.

You can also discuss about the next phase of the selection procedure. At the end of the email, you can once again thank the candidate for showing his/her interest in working with your organisation, as this will leave a very good impression.
