    I have applied for a position and received an email that someone X wants to call me. he asked me about suitable time for calling.

    How could I write an email to him giving him the suitable time (days and hours), suitable alternatives, and the telephone number.

    Thanks

    Through my searching for a job, I got an email from a person (a company where I applied for a position). He expressed that my background is very interseting to him and he would like to know when it would be possible to call me. I wrote this email:
    *** The email I prepared ***

    Dear Dr. XYZ,

    At this time you can reach me by phone at xxxxxxxxxxxxx. My mobile number is also yyyyyyyyyyyyy.
    If this time is not suitable for you, please let me know.
    Thank you in advance

    *** The end of my email ***


    Please could you edit and correct this email.


    Thanks








    Sincerely yours,




    Dear Teacher,

    I have received an Email for a university in which the professor invite me, I have applied for a research position there and after a telephone discussion with him, to his department.

    I have formulated the following email as an acceptance email for is invitation email. Could you please correct this email?

    The email is:
    ***
    Dear Dr. XYZ,

    Thank you very much for the invitation. I accept the invitation and will come on Tuesday February 9th 2010 at 15:00. I hope that this will be a successful start.
    (this time was fixed by the professor in his invitation email)


    Is there any specific program? Should I prepare any type of presentation about a certain topic of research (like my PhD thesis)? I would very grateful if you provide me with any type of arrangement that I have to prepare for.

    I will visit you under the address:

    Department of
    ABC University

    Take it easy! This way you only get a lower wage than they planned to offer at first.

    PS: You may not like to risk such an offer, so , this is just my humble opinion.

    I would replace "suitable" with "convenient": "If this time is not convenient for you, ..."
