So, you’ve prepared for the big interview and nailed it. Should you breathe a sigh of relief and forget about it until you receive a call from your recruiter? Hint: the answer is no!
Are you confused on what you should do next? Don’t worry - we have a handy checklist for you to follow, to help you bag the job of your dreams.
|Reward yourself for your hard work by having your favourite snack...|
If you’ve been through a long, adrenaline inducing day of interviews, you have probably forgotten to eat. Reward yourself for your hard work by having your favourite snack (I would always go straight for the cookie dough.) You’ve earned it, and your blood sugar level will thank you too.
2. Write down all the important points
The interview might be fresh in your memory now, but after a night’s sleep, you might start to wonder exactly what the interviewer told you about the role. Jot down everything you remember from the interview as soon as you get home, whilst eating your well-deserved snack if you wish!
3. What could this opportunity mean for you?
It’s time for some soul-searching. Think about the job opportunity, and why you would be excited if you landed the role. Is this the chance for a change of career? Have you always wanted to work for a company in this particular industry? Think carefully here, because you can use these points to demonstrate your enthusiasm in your thank you email.
4. Send the thank you notes
Once you've completed the previous tasks, it’s time to send a thank you note to your interviewer. Ensure you explain what the opportunity would mean for you, and the contribution you can bring to the role, as discussed at the interview. If you get stuck, here’s a great template for crafting a thank you note.
5. Follow up, again!
It’s been a week since you sent the thank you email to your interviewer, and you are yet to hear back. It may be time to be send a follow up email.
In this email, you can politely inform the interviewer that you are due to receive feedback, so you just want to check in and see if there is anyway else you can assist the process.
You can also use this email as an opportunity to highlight a recent success which you didn’t mention at the interview. If you're currently unemployed, or haven’t anything to add, you could even create a relevant LinkedIn post which will show your enthusiasm for the industry or position.
"Good morning Liz,
I hope you had a great weekend. You mentioned that you’d be in touch with the next steps by Wednesday, so I just wanted to check in.
In the meantime, I wanted to share an article that I published recently on LinkedIn, which was inspired by the conversation we had about [topic you discussed in interview].
It’ll give you a little more on what I think about [subject discussed]. I hope we have the opportunity to work together and have many more of these conversations.
Follow these tips, and you are sure to get a job offer in no time. If you are looking for a new career, or just need some advice, don’t hesitate to email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org
