November Interview Tips

Keep follow up formal
If you have the interviewer’s email address, or someone in the company referred you to the position, it can be tempting to reach out casually or multiple times to find out about the hiring process. It’s better to restrict your outreach to a formal thank you note, either electronically or by mailing a thank you card, and limit your follow up to that. Sending multiple emails or calling to speak with the interviewer can make for an awkward situation if they’ve moved on in the search. Hiring can take time. Multiple approvals, other interviews and outstanding paperwork can slow the process. Make sure you don’t ruin your chances of being hired by being too persistent or flooding the hiring manager’s inbox.
