Interview Follow-up

Interview Follow-up

When is it a good time to do an interview follow-up to an organization?

According to livecareer.com,

 “If the company hasn’t told you anything about the next step, it’s best to wait at least a week before you follow up after an interview. If you are overeager, you risk annoying the recruiter or the hiring manager.”

We would be sharing on how to send a follow-up mail or letter.

1. WHEN SENDING A FOLLOW-UP LETTER, ALWAYS START WITH YOUR HOME ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER AND DATE, THEN THAT OF THE COMPANY YOU HAVE HAD THE INTERVIEW WITH.

WHEN SENDING AN EMAIL, BEGIN WITH THE ADDRESS OF THE COMPANY.

Example:

  • [Your Address]
  • [Phone Number]
  • [Date]
  • [Name of Recruiter]
  • [Position]
  • [Address of Company]

2. ADD A SALUTATION

Example: Dear Sir/Ma, First Name.

3. WHEN WRITING, IT IS IMPORTANT TO BEGIN THE BODY OF THE LETTER SHOWING APPRECIATION FOR THE TIME TO BE INTERVIEWED OR SPOKEN TO, THEREFORE YOU LOOK FORWARD TO BEING PART OF THE COMPANY.

Example: Thank you for a most enjoyable interview for the position of [position] at [the company]. It was a pleasure meeting [names of your interviewer(s), if any] and learning more about the operations of [the company] and I continue to be interested in the [position] with your company.

Note: This shows that you were attentive during your interview.

4. ENSURE TO FOLLOW UP WITH A QUICK SUMMARY OF YOUR PAST WORK EXPERIENCE IN RELEVANT INDUSTRIES, AND HOW IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO THEIR ORGANISATION.

Example: I am very excited about contributing my [years of relevant experience] of [job description] to the success of your company as I feel that my [strong skills, qualities] are an excellent match for your requirements and an asset to your team.

5. ALWAYS ADD A COPY OF YOUR RÉSUMÉ TO YOUR FOLLOW UP LETTER.

Example: Attached is an additional copy of my résumé for your convenience.

6. END WITH AN APPRECIATION AT THE CLOSE OF YOUR LETTER.

Example: Again, I appreciate your consideration for this position and excited by the prospect of working with you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely,

[Your name]
