Yes, I have received a confirmation email for an interview appointment. It contained enough information which did not detail like this. Now I want to try roleplay as an interviewer and write a confirmation email to the candidate. Dear Ms. Go Eun, Thank you for your cover letter. Your knowledge and experience are suitable for a Marketing position which we are looking for. As we discussed by verbal, I am looking forward to seeing you in the first round interview. In the first round, you have to present a case study to provide your solutions to solve the situations and expand our brand to further segmentation. Please find more detailed data on the attachment and send back to us within seven days from today. I’m writing to confirm your appointment with our HR Manager and BU head of Marketing. Your meeting will take place at 3 pm on Thursday on 11th June at our office on the 27th floor of Daewoo towers. When you arrive, please call the receptionist who will guide you to enter our department. I wish you pass an interview. Good luck. Best regards, Bella HR assistant
