So the interview is over now and it is just a matter of waiting for the response now, is it? Wrong. If you are really interested in the job, you need to stand out from the rest by communicating more with the interviewers than the others do.
Getting remembered in a positive way is the key to marketing yourself.
So how do you follow-up after a job interview?
Remember to get the interviewer’s information at the interview. A business card has the person’s name and title, the business address and the interviewer’s email address. You will need these four things.
Send an email as soon as you get home. Do not wait or you may forget. When you send the email, make sure that you spell the name of the interviewer correctly (compare it with the card), otherwise, you may be remembered but not for the right reasons. Thank the person for their time and let them know that they can contact you anytime.
Timing your job interview follow-up
If you have not heard from the interviewer after 5 days, give them a call and just reiterate your interest in the position and let them know again that if they require any further information or documentation to aid them in their decision-making process, they can contact you anytime.
Some people even recommend sending a letter (traditional, postman-style letter!) as this will show that you are very excited about the opportunity (not just with words).
Keep in mind that the more you communicate with the interviewer, the more you will occupy their mind and sometimes, sad to say, those who are not memorable are cut first.
