What is the best way to follow up with an interviewer after a job interview to express my continued interest in the position and increase my chances of getting hired?
The best way to follow up with an interviewer after a job interview is to send a thank you note or email within 24-48 hours of the interview. In the note, you should express your gratitude for the interviewer’s time and reiterate your interest in the position. It’s also a good idea to mention something specific from the interview that you found particularly interesting or relevant to the position.
Make sure to keep the tone professional and polite, while still being personable. The email address or contact number of the interviewer should be available with you, make sure to double check before sending the mail.
Additionally, you can also try to connect with the interviewer on LinkedIn, this will help you to remain in their mind and increase your visibility. However, make sure not to overdo it and don’t send multiple follow-up messages or emails as it might come across as pushy or desperate.
It’s also important to be patient and respectful of the interviewer’s time, as they may be busy with other candidates and the hiring process. A well-written and thoughtful follow-up can help to keep you top of mind and increase your chances of getting hired.
