Following Up

Posted: Updated:

After an interview, your follow-up can make or break your chances of getting the job. This extra step doesn't take much time, but it can be a great way to stand out from other applicants. Some hiring managers won't even hire a candidate that didn't write a thank you note.

Here are some interview follow-up tips:

• During an in-person interview, ask for your interviewer's business card to make sure you have his or her name and contact information

• Send a personal email message within 24 hours after the interview, thanking each person you met with for taking the time to meet:

– Highlight your qualifications and reiterate your interest in the job (assuming you are interested)

– Use this opportunity to ask any questions you forgot to ask or make additional comments

– Send the interviewer any additional materials to be considered, like a portfolio, website or other examples of work

• Keep it short

• Proofread your note before sending!

These tips for interview follow-up may be the key to landing your next job!
