Whether your respond or not depends on whether you received an automated response,which is usually not signed and sent from the system of the employer (for example if you uploaded your resume to an ATS system) or if you received a confirmation signed by someone on th HR team that seems to have been manually sent.

In the first case, you should not respond at all.


If it is the latter, it's appropriate to respond with a brief and professional message. Here is an example of a suitable response:

Dear [Recipient's Name],

Thank you for taking the time to confirm receipt of my resume. I am very interested in the [Position Name] role and I am excited about the opportunity to further discuss my qualifications for the position.

If there's anything additional that you need from me, please let me know. I am available for a call or meeting at your convenience.

Thank you again for considering me for this opportunity. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,

[Your Name]
