Customer question on: when to follow-up after a job interview
I do get very nervous and don’t seem to answer the question fully or to there satisfaction.
I ‘m currently living in Northern Ireland.
Last week I had an interview for a secretarial job and I have heard nothing back from the company. Should I wait a little longer or phone them and inquire what the situation is? Bearing in mind it took them 6 months to contact me for the interview.
Don’s answer to following up after a job interview
During the interview, I like to ask “when do you plan on making decision?” This way, I’ll know when to follow-up with them without pressuring them. If they say within 2 weeks, then I’ll wait 2-3 weeks before I follow-up.
But if it’s only been a week, you might want to wait a few more days and then follow-up with a phone call. I personally like to follow-up with a phone call on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday around 9:00 AM.
I think you have the best chance of catching them at their desk at these times. Never follow-up on Monday or Friday. Monday is too busy and Friday is to relaxed and they are thinking about the weekend and visiting their favorite pub.
