After the job interview
Choosing how long to wait before following up after an interview is one of the toughest aspects of the process.
Choosing how long to wait before following up after an interview is one of the toughest aspects of the process. If you decide to go further, ask kindly (before you leave) when you might hear from the recruiting manager if they decide to go further and if they don't disclose the company's timeline by the conclusion of the interview.
Before requesting information regarding their choice, respect the timescale they present. "Respect the timeline they provide before inquiring about their choice,"
Experts advise writing a thank-you message to each person you spoke with during the interview within 24 hours, regardless of the deadline specified by the firm. You have the same day that your email is sent to send a second handwritten letter if you'd like. It will then arrive a day or two after your email note, underscoring your thoughtfulness.
Your follow-up should focus on the following three points:
- I am quite grateful that the interviewer took the time to speak with me.
- A remark on a unique topic you brought up throughout your talk.
- Repetition of your interest in the job and the reasons you believe you'll succeed in it
It is vital not to overcommunicate with the interviewer. Send one follow-up 24 hours after the interview, and you may consider sending one more if you do not hear from them after more than a week unless they specifically told you to expect a longer timeline.
