Why should you follow up after an interview?
We always recommend following up after an interview. Not only is it a great way to stand out from other candidates, it’ll also help put your mind at rest when it comes to finding out any potential feedback a recruiter may have.
When do we recommend following up after an interview?
We recommend reaching out to an employer a few weeks after your interview, to check on any progress. We also suggest sending a quick thank you email afterwards, as a polite and professional way of keeping in touch.
Why hasn’t your interviewer contacted you yet?
It can take somewhere between two and six weeks for a recruiter to get back in touch after an interview. But there are many reasons why an employer hasn’t called – ranging from the number of people they have left to see, right through to sorting out their schedule. To help show some initiative, we suggest making asking for feedback a key part of your post-interview checklist.
