Honestly I've never written a job application letter and needless to say I haven't received a letter that states an appointment for a Job Interview. Although I often write an email to make Inquiry and book a hotel room.

I receive confirmation emails but not really often. When it comes to writing a confirmation email by myself, it almost never happens.
