- Strong follow up may be the difference between getting an offer or not. If an employer has two equally skilled potential employees who both fit with the organization, receiving professional follow up may tip the scales in one’s favor.
- A thank you is also a place for you to reiterate your skills or to mention something you may have forgotten or did not have the chance to speak about.
- Thank you email: Send immediately following the interview (within 24 hours) to all those with whom you met
- Thank You Letter: Drop in mail within two days; send to all those with whom you met
- Phone call follow up: In your interview you should have asked what the timeline was for making a decision. You are free to call once a few days AFTER the decision-making date. Call the hiring manager in charge of your interview.
