Interviewing

Main Interviewing Page

After the Interview

The interview may be over but your responsibilities regarding the interview are not.

Thank You

Within 48 hours you need to send a thank you card/letter expressing your appreciation for the interview and reiterating your interest in the position. It is important to get business cards from all interviewers before leaving the company so you will have the necessary information needed to send a thank you card to each person involved in the interview.

Evaluate your Performance

The interview is an opportunity to evaluate your interviewing skills and the job itself. After the interview, spend some time asking yourself "Is this the job for me?", "How did I do in the interview?", "Is this company the right fit for me?"

Follow up

If you haven't heard anything from the interviewer in a stated length of time, follow up on the status of the position and again express your interest. You can do this by phone or email, this is again where the business card will come in handy.
