Waiting for a call post-interview feels like waiting for a freshly–painted manicure to dry. So, how do you make sure to land the job after interview? Aside from having the right qualifications and making a friendly connection with the interviewer, here are 3 ways to help you secure the position of your dreams!
When the employer is finished inquiring during the interview process, feel free to ask some questions for yourself. Discover which specific qualities they look for in a worker, what a regular day at the office would look like and when you can expect to be hearing back from them etc. Not only will this help you get a better feel of the company, the way they work and the person you are interacting with but it will also let them know you are serious, excited and interested in becoming familiar with the responsibilities that position entails.
2. Follow Up
Following up after an interview is essential! Be proactive. Sending a kind and well thought out thank you e-mail after the interview will show that you respect their time and that you are eager to be a part of the team. Also, following up can assist in setting you apart from other candidates. Make sure you don’t make any spelling errors and that you address them by the correct titles and names.
3. Alert Your References
Your references will appreciate you letting them know in advance that they might be receiving a call or e-mail from a potential future employer. Surely, they have exceedingly busy schedules and being informed of any sort of call will allow them to better organize their daily plans. Not only will your references acknowledge your consideration, but also they will probably be more likely to pass on positive words to whoever decides to call.
