I attended an interview on 21 December 2019. I successfully cleared the first round. Due to some time restrictions and unavailability of a panel, HR told me she will schedule a telephonic round but she didn't yet. I want to write a reminder letter to her.

    Lets be clear here... you had an interview on a Saturday and you want to remind them because they did not schedule the call during all of Sunday? I don't know what company that is, but do you think they might have something like office hours? – nvoigt Dec 22 '19 at 16:25

    How urgent is it that you need a job? You just had your first interview yesterday (strangely on a weekend). I'd wait until after the New Year to follow up. I highly doubt many will be in the office during Christmas holidays or even before the New Year. – KingDuken Dec 22 '19 at 20:08

One day is too soon to be sending a formal reminder; at any time of year you should allow at least 48 hours (not including weekends) to give HR and interviewers time to consult diaries, and in late December in UK/US/Europe it is likely staff are winding down for Christmas already.

  • She told me to send reminder letter to her because she was middle of so many activities. – Riya sen Dec 22 '19 at 15:22

    That’s information to add into your question. – mxyzplk - SE stop being evil Dec 22 '19 at 15:45
  • And the post is winding down too, at least in the UK. If you post a letter tonight, it is unlikely to be received until the 30th. – Julia Hayward Dec 22 '19 at 18:40

If the HR person instructed you to send them a reminder then send it the next business day.


Per your comment on another answer:

She told me to send reminder letter to her because she was middle of so many activities.

It sounds like you are simply asking how to phrase such a request?

I would go with something like:

Hi HR person,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to interview with your company.

Per our previous communication, you requested that I remind you to schedule a phone interview with me.

The only day which could be problematic for me is Thursday from 9am-1pm so please feel free to suggest any other time.

I hope all is well during this busy holiday season and look forward to the next phase!

Sincerely, Riya sen

If your interview was Saturday then I would wait until Tuesday morning at the earliest to send the reminder.
