Subject: Round 1 Applicants

Hi Everyone,

Our first round of interviews is complete and I would like to get together with the Sales Managers so we can discuss who will go on to the next round. I know you are all extremely busy on Thursday morning, but we are hoping to choose 6 new employees to fill the vacant positions as soon as possible so it would be great if we could have about an hour of your time to help us make these important decisions. The board room is booked that day, so I reserved C315. Please let me know if you’ll be available.

Thanks,

Lana Green

Lana,

Thanks for reserving the room and keeping the process moving quickly. Unfortunately, all three of us are going to be involved in a management seminar on Thursday. Since this is a decision that will affect the future of the company for years, it is better to hold off until the beginning of next week. Mondays tend to be too hectic so Tuesday or Wednesday might be an ideal time to reschedule.

All the best,

John Fritz
Senior Sales Manager
