You just left a wonderful interview for a job you would love to have and you are on cloud nine. As the days pass, your happiness starts to wane and you wonder if you made a good impression. At the end of the week, you still have not heard anything and you wonder if they are considering you. It is time to make a post-interview follow-up call to get the information you need.
Sit down with a notepad and pen about a week after the job interview to make the follow-up call. Having a notepad on hand will help you take any notes that come up on your follow-up call.
Call the place where you interviewed and ask to speak to the person you interviewed with.
Tell the interviewer your name, why you are calling and remind her when you sat down with her for the interview. This will refresh her mind as to whom she is speaking with.
Ask the interviewer about the status of the position you interviewed for. If the position is still open, ask if you are still being considered.
End the follow-up call after your job interview by telling the interviewer that you are still interested in the job and you look forward to hearing from her in the future.
