The Post Job Interview Secret Weapon

The post job interview period is a job seeker’s last chance to make himself or herself stand out to the interviewer and assure the second job interview. To do this, however, the job interviewer must be sure that he or she uses the post job interview actions to his or her best advantage. Most candidates simply write a standard issue thank you letter, one that thanks the interviewer for the time, expresses further interest in the position and invites a second interview. If you are comfortable simply fitting into the typical category like that, then you can do the same. If, however, you would like for your post job interview efforts to stand out, you can do a little more with the thank you letter that you send out.

One simple way to make your post job interview communication stand out is to include something that the interviewer wants, needs and is interested in. In other words, a present. Ultimately, your choices will be constrained by logistics and standards of appropriateness. What the interviewer would really like is money, or an expensive present. Since that’s neither appropriate for you to give or the interviewer to receive, you will be forced to include something that is more intangible and less substantial. That something is information. Again, your choices are limited by logistics and standards. Logistically speaking, you don’t have enough familiarity to be one hundred percent sure what the interviewer will want. You also want to avoid sending information that is inappropriate or unprofessional, like links to pornography sites or a selection of dirty jokes.

Your Post Job Interview Letter Strategy

For these reasons, your best bet for a post job interview letter addition is something related to a topic that came up in the interview. If you paid attention, surely you noticed some topic or subject that the interviewer paid special attention to or appeared to be more excited by. Maybe it was during the interview, as he or she described the job duties and developments. Or it might have been in the personal talk before and after the substantive interview. Use that as your guide for what kind of informational present to send. Find some piece of information related to that subject or topic.

In your post job interview letter, be sure to refer to the reason that you are sending the information. Say something like, “during our conversation I noticed that you were interested in my hobby of marathon running, and said that you’d like to get back into jogging seriously again. I’ve included the link to my running club home page. If you’d like to come on one of our training sessions, we’d be glad to welcome you.” Including information like this serves to differentiate yourself from the herd of other candidates, and shows that you are other-focused. Additionally, it creates a slight relationship with the interviewer. Probably not enough of a relationship to counteract a disastrous interview, but enough to give you the benefit of the doubt on a so-so one.
