Work Tips: Job Interview Follow Up 

The first impression given in an interview is very important and the second impression can be even more crucial.  Proper etiquette following a job interview shows your character and reputation so it’s essential for job seekers to put their best foot forward once again.  Below are some tips to get you started: 


  • Thank you note.  It is acceptable to compose an email thank you note, but writing a note of thanks with a pen and hard copy note card are still very much appreciated when it comes to potential employers. 


  • Timing.  As noted above, it is ok to send an email of thanks to your potential employer, but make sure you do so in a timely manner.  Try to send the email shortly after the interview.  Doing so shows your respect for the meeting and the possibility of getting a job with the manager.    


  • Contact.  Do not forget to ask the potential boss for a contact email address.  You will want to follow up with them in an email to see if they know anything about hiring you or know about the next step in the interview or review process. 


            Proper follow up can often make or break your chances of getting the job.  So make every word count and remember to be polite and sincerely impress the hiring manager.
