I'm trying to tell someone when I'd be available for an interview.
Seems easy, right?
I'm available 8-11 AM on the 1st and 3-5 PM on the 2nd.
But this seems ambiguous in that "8-11" could mean either I'm available ending at 11, or the latest I can start the interview is 11.
Or I could just say: (e.g. for an hour interview)
I'm available starting at any point between 8 and 10 AM on the 1st and 3 and 4 PM on the 2nd.
But this would only work when I know the duration of the interview (which I don't).
I will ask how long the interview will be, but I'd like to also give my availability in the same email, to avoid the additional unnecessary back-and-forth.
Of course I can also just explain what the end time means:
I'm available from 8 AM onward ending no later than 11 AM on the 1st.
But this would get very clunky when trying to specify multiple time ranges.
How can I unambiguously and briefly give my availability in the form of time ranges?
