How to follow up professionally after job interview revealed
Have you appeared for the interview of a much coveted job but haven't heard back yet? Here are ways to follow up after a job interview.
Allyson Willoughby, senior vice president of people at Glassdoor, has revealed that following up in a professional manner shows continued interest in a job opportunity but candidates must be cautious and not become a burden to the hiring manager, Mashable reported.
The best way is to ask about their timeline for making a hiring decision before you leave the interview, which help you to properly time your follow-up attempts and in the meanwhile, be updated about the recent news about the company.
According to Nathan Mirizio, content marketing writer at The Resumator, using the last form of communication that you had with a recruiter is the best medium for following up.
If the company has given you a set time frame and exceeded it by longer than a week, a well-written, concise and friendly follow-up note is reasonable.
Chris Fields, a human resources consultant and expert resume writer at ResumeCrusade.com, reminds job seekers that focusing on other opportunities is the best way to move forward in case you don't hear back.
