Following Up: The Golden Rule

August 2014

This month's InnerView Career Q&A illustrates best practices for the post-interview phase of job-seeking. The time after your conversation with the hiring manager wraps up can be as crucial as the interview itself—read on for advice on how to follow up wisely and proactively!

Q: What is the protocol for following up after interviews? What does it mean to be too pushy or too lax? -A. Brookover, Arlington, VA

A: Consider the time after your interview as an unofficial extension of the conversation you had with the hiring manager. You’ll want to reach out promptly—time is of the essence here and can make or break your candidacy for the position. That being said, following up is simpler than you would think! There really is only one “golden rule” to connecting after an interview, which is: 

1. Send a thank you note.

This is a simple yet impactful gesture. Sending one is not only courteous, but advantageous. Approximately 15% of hiring managers wouldn’t hire someone if they didn’t receive a note. Email or snail mail (or both) is fine, as long as it goes beyond a simple “thank you,” is sent quickly, and encapsulates what the organization needs and how you can address them.
