December Interview Tips

Ask about next steps
Whether your interview is over the phone or in person, make sure to ask about the next steps in the process. This will give you peace of mind and show the interviewer you are forward thinking and serious about the opportunity. Over the phone, ask if an in-person interview will be the next step and who you’ll be meeting with at that time. If your interview is in person, ask what their process looks like moving forward and if you should expect another interview before a decision is made. Send a short thank you note after any in person interview, but avoid the temptation to call or email. You want to wait for them to contact you, so as not to seem desperate.
