How to send assignment email to candidates?

Informing candidates about all the specifics of the test or assignment increases the chances of good performance, and it also enhances a better candidate experience. Make sure to have a very clear subject line that also includes the time frame and deadline for taking the assignment.

In addition, make sure that the link to the assignment, an attachment or any other form of the test is included in the email. Give a few instructions on how to take the test, and make it clear about what is expected from them to do.

After you have received their assignment, make sure that you send a short thank you email just so that they know that you have received it. You can also tell them about what to expect next.
