Interview Tips

How to Act after Interviews

Immediately send a thank-you letter to each of your interviewers. Sending thank-you letters is professional and courteous, and will help to make you stand out in the minds of your interviewers.

Besides, most interviewers expect it; again, it's a good idea to do what interviewers expect!

Be prepared to attend at least two rounds of interviews at the same company on different days.

If you're called back for a second round of interviews, it likely means that they're interested in hiring you; but, it might also mean that they're narrowing the competition. Keep up the good work!

Be patient. It's not unusual for interviewers to take weeks to narrow the competition, if there's no urgency to hire just any ol' warm body. But, if you don't hear from them in about a week after your last round of interviews or within 24 hours or so after they said you'd hear from them, then it's okay to send follow-up letters.

One follow-up letter per interviewer is sufficient; don't pester, as the squeaky wheel doesn't always get the oil in this case. If they're interested in hiring you, they'll contact you without prodding. But it doesn't hurt to make sure that your job candidacy didn't fall through the corporate cracks, after waiting a reasonable period of time. It also shows that you really want the job and are eager to start.

However, don't call your interviewers without permission. They might consider it rude of job applicants to interrupt their busy workday with unsolicited calls.

To the contrary, other career writers might advise you to make the calls anyway. So, you be the judge; but, first, put yourself in your interviewer's place. Would you want your busy workday interrupted by unsolicited calls from a half-dozen or so interviewees?

If you don't hear back from an interviewer after sending a follow-up letter, then the odds are that he or she is not interested in hiring you; time to move on to another company.

Good luck on your next interview!
