Rescheduling an interview with an applicant

Job interview templates

This is an example of an email that can be used to reschedule an interview with an applicant. It is important to communicate clearly and mention the reasons why the change is happening. It would be ideal if you could offer two new dates/times for the applicant to choose from.
