    Hi everybody,
    I have received an invitation for a job interview and I would like to reply that I want to come with pleasure.
    Can I say:
    "I glad to attend your interview." ?

    Thanks for help

    No, that's not correct. Since the interview is in the future, you would say:

    "I will be glad to attend an/the interview"

    I think calling it "your" interview sounds odd.

    Your sentence is incomplete because it is lacking a verb. You could say any of the following:
    I'm glad to attend.
    I will gladly attend.
    I would be happy to come in for an interview.
    I look forward to the opportunity of coming in for an interview.
    I greatly appreciate the opportunity of coming in for an interview.

    In such formal circumstances, I would not use a contraction. I would therefore write g_man's first suggestion as "I am glad to attend."

    I suggest 'will be', I think 'am' sounds weird, like you are actually there, with 'will be', it refers that you will be glad WHEN you attend (i.e. next week) so it matches the 'future' action
