Follow-Up

Follow up

Be memorable

Following-up after an interview can be the one thing that makes you stand out.

Following an interview the company or organization will take some time to determine whether or not you are the best candidate for the position. One way to stand out during this time is by effectively following-up.

Sending a Thank You

A thank you note restating your interest in the position and the organization should be sent within 24 hours of each interview, to each person with whom you spoke. Make each note somewhat different and try to reference something you discussed in the interview.

Still Haven't Heard Back?

If the employer did not provide a specific time frame for getting back to you, two weeks is an appropriate time to wait before following-up on the status of your candidacy.

If the employer provided a specific time frame for a decision on, take no further action until at least one week beyond the date when they said they would contact you. At that time a phone call to see if a decision has been made is appropriate.
