Amazing After The Job Interview Tips

Most interview guides focus on the actions that a job seeker must take before the job interview, but very few include after job interview strategy. The first thing that a job seeker should do after his or her job interview is to write a note of thanks to the interviewer. This note of thanks should follow a format that completes all the required tasks of a note like this. The first task of course, is to express appreciation for the interview. Simply stating something along the lines of “thank you for your time on Tuesday” should fit that bill nicely. Second, the thank you note should express continued interest in the position. Writing something like “after learning about the job, I am more interested in the opportunity than ever” is a good way to do that.

The after job interview note should then invite the interviewer to contact the job seeker to set up another interview. Something like “I am looking forward to speaking to you or your colleagues again as the hiring process moves forward. Feel free to give me a call to set up another meeting.” Last but not least, the job interview thank you note should provide the interviewer with something that sets you apart from the rest of the thank you notes that he or she will undoubtedly receive. One efficient way to do this is to include a small piece of information called the informational gift in the job interview thank you note. This is nothing more than a simple tidbit of knowledge -- like a contact name, a link to a website, or an article from the Web -- that you believe would be of interest to the interviewer.

Your after job interview thank you note should include the information, introduced by something like the following line. “During our conversation, you mentioned that you would be spending a lot of time in the Chicago branch of your company. I’ve included the names of some of my favorite steakhouses in Chicago, and hope that you can get a chance to visit a couple of them while you are there.” This kind of addition to your interview thank you note lets the interviewer know that you paid attention to the things he or she said in the interview. What’s more, it makes the interviewer look forward to more contact with you.

Having the interviewer interested in hearing from you again is an important consideration. Because during the job hiring process, you may have to wait weeks or even months between the interview and the decision to hire. This delay could be a result of internal politics or budget constraints or even simple personnel schedule issues. But for whatever the reason, you cannot let the delay cause you to fall off the employer’s radar screen. While the other candidates go into the company and get their interviews, you should periodically check into the company and get feedback on the decision status. Creating the expectation that your communications will contain valuable information makes these inquiries much more likely to be productive.
