How to invite for an interview

In this case, the caller is presented (last name, first name, if accepted at the company, then the middle name, position (optional), company name), informs that he is calling about the resume that he sent for the vacancy, and suggests the time and place of the meeting. it will not be superfluous to inquire whether it is convenient for the other person to speak at the moment. If not, negotiate a more comfortable time to contact and who will call: you or the candidate.
