Resume Thank You Email

Whenever a candidate applies for a vacant position at your company, it is your responsibility to confirm the acceptance of resume and thank him/her for showing interest in applying for a position.

You can start the email by thanking him/her for the application, and confirm that you received the resume. Next, you can intimate him/her about the date or time period when he/she will get a response on the application. You can then end your email by wishing the candidate best of luck for his/her application.
