Yes, I often receive emails from recruitment when I apply for jobs. They sent emails about the appointment with the interviewer. Then I often write emails to confirm the meeting. Also, I sometimes write emails to take leave.

Thanks for your lesson.
Great site.

When confirming an appointment, I usually do it by phone. Nowadays, I think it is also common to confirm your appointments just by a single click of a button. This lesson, however, was very helpful as it can be useful in the future.

No I don’t, I’m actually working at a company and I’m not looking for a new job, but 
sometimes I need to write this kind of emails to providers when we need to hire some
services at the company. In that case we use to set an appointment with an account
manager to specify our needs and to ask for costs.

 

Thanks for the lesson.

Great site!

I noticed something in reading text portion:

Your appointment will take place at 3 p.m. on Thursday 14 March at our Astana offices in Emerald Towers.

Comma must be placed before 14 March. Isn’t?

Hi Hinthu,

Not necessarily! This is a question of style, rather than grammar. Some style guides recommend putting a comma after the day, but other style guides do not.
