So, you had your interview, now what?
- It is important to thank your interviewer for taking the time to interview you. Writing a simple thank you note is usually the best way to thank them. This can be a handwritten note or an email.
- Usually, the company will give you an approximate time (e.g. 2 or 3 weeks) when they will inform you of their final decision. If after that time frame you haven't heard from them, you can call or email to follow up to ask where they are in their hiring process. This shows initiative on your end and tells the management that you are serious about the job.
- If you did not get the job, always stay polite. Maybe the next job position the company posts is a better fit for you. In that case, they will already know you and have a good impression of you.
- If you got the job, congratulations! Make sure you to ask any final questions you have about the company, their expectations of you, wages/salary, sick days, and potential benefits such as paid days off and health insurance.
