An interview letter (interview invitation letter) is a formal communication from interviewers to potential interviewees to present themselves for an interview. The letter informs the recipient of the venue, time, and date of the interview. Additionally, it may highlight details of the documents the interviewee must present to the interviewer.
If you have doubts on what to include in an interview invitation letter, sample letters can be a great help.
