Five things to do after the job interview

Five things to do after the job interview

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 about 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...  

1. Refuel

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.

Five things to do after the job interview4. Send the thank you notes

Once you've completed the previous tasks, it’s time to write a thank-you email to your interviewer. This needs to be handled well and you need to take care that you express your interest in the role without coming across too keen.

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 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 and see if there is any other way you can assist with the process.
