Subject Line: New job opportunity at (company name)

Dear (candidate name),

I hope this email finds you well.

My name is (your name), I am the (job title) at (company name). I’ve had the opportunity to meet you when you came for an interview for the (job title) position. (It would be interesting to add something from the last time you two communicated and give your email a personal touch, like I hope your graduation day was fun!, I recall you were searching for a new apartment at that time, hopefully you were able to find something suitable).

Even though last time we decided to move forward with another candidate for the (job title) position because (you could mention 1-2 reason(s) why this candidate was not selected, e.g. lack of experience, overqualified or strong competition). However, we believe you meet the criteria for our new job vacancy and strongly encourage you to consider this position as it fits your skills and expertise.

I would love to schedule a call meeting with you to discuss this new position and its responsibilities. Please reply to this email and let me know if (include date/time or a period of time, e.g. sometime this week?). If not, we can coordinate a meeting via another medium such as Zoom or Skype, if they are more convenient for you.

I hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

(Your name)
