interview is a must in today’s market. Whether that’s with a handwritten
thank-you note, a customized LinkedIn message or an email, you can’t afford not
to follow up after a job interview. In fact, 90% of hiring managers appreciate
some type of follow-up after an interview, so in this video you’ll learn
my top 5 tips to follow up after a job interview so that you can secure a job
offer. Let’s jump into it. Step number one is to follow-up within 24 hours after
the interview. This will keep you top of the interviewers mind after the
interview finishes and it keeps the momentum going. This is also a great way
to get one last final word in before hiring decisions are made. Tip number two
is to send a follow-up to each person that you interviewed with. Now this
doesn’t mean to copy and paste the same message to every person. You want a
custom tailor the message to each person that you interviewed with. An easy way to
do this is once the interview is finished, jot down the name of everyone
that you interviewed with or if you can get a business card from them
during the interview and then write down next to their name or on the back of the
business card, a question that they asked you or something that they said in the
interview that is specific to them and then custom tailor your message to that.
Tip number three is to express your gratitude. You want to start the
follow-up by thanking the interviewer or interviewers for their time and then
mention something in there that shows your passion and interest for the
industry the position or the company. Go on to tell them what impressed you most
about the interview or maybe something you learned from the interview and then
you can mention something that you know you can help them with such as a
particular pain point or a problem that they are experiencing right now. So
here’s an example of how this can be done. “Thank you for your time today!
I enjoyed discussing the possibility of working with your organization in the
position of and then list the position title. I was very impressed to learn that
[mentione something that you learned from the interview that caught your
attention]. It was a pleasure to discover that like me, your company values and
then list some type of point of view or value that you share with the company.
Tip number four, remind them of why you are the best candidate for the position.
To do this, reiterate a skill and expertise or an accomplishment that you
have that relates specifically to the position and then mention how you can
help the company solve a particular problem. Here’s an example of how you
could write this. “After our conversation today, I am certain my skills and
expertise in the areas of and then list the skill the expertise or the
accomplishment as it relates to the position, will undoubtedly help your
organization and then list the problem or pain point that the company is
experiencing that you know you can assist with. Step number five is to show
your personality. Infuse your follow-up with character and personality. This is a
great way to stand out from all the other candidates that are also sending a
follow-up. This also shows the interviewer or interviewers why
you would be so great to work with. Interviewers almost always hire based on
personality over skillset. Now to make sure you get it right when it comes to your
interview follow-up, make sure you take a look at the Ultimate Interview Follow Up
