Career Tip #22: One of the biggest pet peeves of job seekers is receiving no final word after an interview, positive or negative. Here is what you can do: 1. Did you get the business card of the interviewer? The evening after the interview, send a personal email thanking the interviewer for their time and reiterating a few key points of why you are perfect for the job and restating your interest in it. 2. Follow up by phone 2-3 days after the interview to see if a decision has been made, leaving a voicemail if necessary, again reaffirming your interest in the position. 3. Continue following up every week alternating between phone and email until they tell you a decision has been made.
Do not shy away from follow up! Show you want the job.
