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.

4 Ways Job Seekers Are Finding Your Jobs

October 12th, 2016

Are you looking to list a job opening for your company? It’s no longer sufficient to just post it on your website. With a diverse job market, you need to post your job openings and seek out the best candidate in a variety ways.

What are four platforms to use when posting your job?

1. Company Website

Tried and true, make sure to post job openings on the career section of your company website. If job seekers are visiting your website, they should be able to easily find open positions at your company. Make the call to actions on your site easily seen and appealing. Don’t rely on the website visitor to find your job board. Make it simple to find and easy to use.

2. Social Media

The potential hires that make up the current job market are on social media. In addition to your other social media posts, you should post your job openings on the social platforms where you are active. Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter are all great social media sites to use when posting your job openings. Think about the type of job opening and consider your audience. Facebook can be better for administrative and clerical jobs while LinkedIn is a great place for management-level positions.

3. Referrals

You have colleagues, clients, and networking friends who know you well. Use those relationships to put out feelers for good candidates. Your connections won’t want to give you any employees who could let you down, so they’ll send you the best they know!

4. Staffing Companies/Recruiters

Another great resource for finding top candidates is using a local staffing company. They have a steady stream of people who need help finding a job and will have a vast network created. Plus, since they get to know their job seekers and what position will suit them best, they’ll send you candidates that are a good match for the opening you have.

Finding the right fit for a job position is an important part of building a successful company. When it comes to posting your job openings, make sure to be thorough and utilize the four ideas above. It might take more time in the beginning, but you’ll have a better pool of candidates to choose from and therefore, you’ll be able to hire the person best for the job. Creating a process for posting in multiple locations will make it easier and more efficient to locate the right candidate for your job.
