Following up after an interview is an integral part of the job search process. You would be amazed at the amount of people that fail to follow up in some way. Competition for jobs in certain fields is as fierce as it has ever been, and those that do follow up, put themselves in a position to stand out above everyone else. However, there is a fine line between having an aggressive follow up strategy and being annoying.
The easiest way to begin the actual follow up process is by asking the interviewer if it’s ok to follow up. They’ll probably say yes, but this will help you get a gauge as to if they are interested in you and want to extend the conversation or if they’re not feeling you at all.
Additionally, you want to take advantage of LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a very powerful tool that we have at our disposal that no too many people take advantage of. In the course of the interview ask whether if it’s ok to connect with them on LinkedIn.
Staying top of mind is the key to succeeding in your job search. Now, more than ever you shouldn’t be leaving any stone unturned or any opportunity to connect with a potential employer on the table.
