Interested in the position?

Not interested in the position?
Not sure?

It doesn't matter! Whatever your interest level, absolutely follow-up with the person (or persons) with whom you spoke.

 
Purpose

Courtesy never goes out of style:

  • It's proper business etiquette to thank the interviewer(s) for the time spent with you.

Top-of-mind-awareness (if you are interested):

  • Keep your name and memory at the forefront.
  • Reiterate the reasons you are a good match for the position.
  • Ask for the job again! This is especially important if you are applying for a sales position!
  • Address any concerns that were raised.
 
Method

E-mail:

  • In today's environment, e-mail is acceptable and is the means we recommend.
  • In some unique circumstances, you may wish to send a written note in addition to the e-mail.
  • Send a separate message to each person with whom you spoke.
  • A thank you is appropriate for phone interviews as well as face-to-face interviews.
