Yes, I received an email comfirming an appointment three months ago. At that time, I just graduated and applied for the Hangxanh Company. Luckily, I passed the CV round and received an interview suggestion. Then I wrote an email to confirm my appointment with them.

Yes, I send emails for job application, wifi contract renewal etc. Sending emails is also part of my working life. I need to communicate with people by email at work. I can send information to difference people as an attachment in an email. I think the way of communication have been changed now. Besides sending email, people like to communicate through other social media, such as WhatsApp. Because using WhatsApp communicate is faster and more convenient, you can convey text messages, documents, voice notes, photos etc. It speeds up the working efficiency! In my opinion, email is more formal, it is good when dealing with third parties. If I want to contact my colleagues on urgent matters, I prefer to text them via WhatsApp.

I received emails like these ones last time I changed my job. I remember I needed to align time and place and since the company who was interviewing me was in a different country we scheduled many conference calls by Skype.

When you are a job seeker is usual to receive this kind of email. You can receive an email like this one if the company where you send your CV wants to inform you about the possibility of know more about your career and your life. In this case, they can make an appointment in their office for an interview or a videocall.

I don't remember receiving the confirmation email for my booking. I also haven't written it.However, I think that I have to write a confirmation email etc. when I start working.I read this paragraph today and it was very helpful.I have a business communication class in a university class and take that class.The lesson is useful, but it is very difficult.It is very difficult to use English that is not rude to the other party. For example, why is it more polite to use would rather than will when making a request? Etc. Although I can't explain well in my native language, I'm taking lessons because I find it difficult in English. However, if I were to work abroad, it would have to be done naturally.I felt like studying everyday. Reservation confirmation e-mails such as this one will make the recipient feel good by paying careful attention.I think that writing a polite sentence will facilitate communication with the other party and will be more trusted. When I become a member of society, I pay close attention to the email text.
