The Right Way to Follow Up After Your Job Interview

November 6th, 2019

Phew! A sigh of relief after your interview might be one of the best feelings you’ll have during your job search. But alas, you are not done. It’s important to follow up the right way with the people you had the pleasure of interviewing with and there are some key tips you should follow. 

First, Three Things You Should NOT Do

Before we get into what you should do, it’s important that you don’t do these things.

Don’t Post About It on Social Media

In a time when people post every thought on social media, resist the urge to share all your post-interview feelings with your peers. The hiring team may be checking out your profiles and it’s unprofessional, even immature, to post about a job interview experience right away.

Don’t Make Assumptions

Feeling like you rocked the interview? That’s great! But before you put in any notices or arrangements to start the job, just stop. Be patient and wait for the official offer. Not feeling entirely content with your interview performance? Don’t worry and don’t assume the worst. Consider how you did well at the interview, and explore ways in which you can improve your interview skills in the future if needed. Remember, there’s no such thing as a fruitless interview.

Don’t Overdo It

As you put into practice the tips below, be sure to stay genuine and don’t overdo it. If you come across as pushy or as a nuisance, you won’t increase your chances of landing the job. In fact, you could actually decrease the likeness of getting a job offer.

Now, Follow These Tips to Follow Up Your Job Interview the Right Way

Increase your chances of getting a job offer by following these best practices for post-interview etiquette.

Write a Thank You Note

Sending a thank-you note is the most important thing to do after your interview. Each person you interview with should receive a thank-you note. Before you leave each interview, be sure to get the person’s information (hopefully you get a business card to make it easy!). As always, proofread your note to make sure you don’t have any silly errors and pay special attention to the person’s name. These notes should be brief and sincere. There is no rule for how to send them, however email generally ensures a quick delivery and therefore a quick impression upon your recipient.

Stay in Touch

Regardless of whether or not you feel like you have a job offer on the horizon, consider connecting with anyone you interviewed with at the company. LinkedIn is a great place to do this, especially if you felt like there was a good connection. Don’t feel self conscious about seeking to stay in touch as many professionals use LinkedIn and other networking sites on a regular basis. But, if you feel like it’s not true to yourself, you can stay in touch via email or even a phone call.
