They say that the squeaky wheel gets the oil, but in job searching you have to find a balance between being persistent and being annoying. Hi, I'm Shannon Terry, I'm an interview skills coach and resume writer with Resume Confidence, here to help you learn how to follow up after a second phone interview. The follow up actually begins at the end of the interview. Ask what the next steps are in the job search process. State your interests, make sure you do that, so they know that you want the job. Send a thank you note, yes, again, right away, and if they specified a time frame that they're going to be getting back to you, and they don't actually call you on that day, call them, the next business day to follow up. If they didn't specify a follow up date, then I would wait two or three business days before you make your follow up call. Keep all of your follow up calls brief. Simply call say your name, hi, I'm so and so, and I'm calling to follow up on the, and list the name of the job that you're applying for. I interviewed on and give the date and the time and this helps jog their memory. Again, repeat your name and your contact information for their convenience and then just simply end your call with I look forward to hearing from you soon, or I'm really looking forward to that call. In the meantime, keep on looking for other jobs, it's always good to have options. I'm Shannon Terry, an interview skills coach and resume writer with Resume Confidence helping you follow up after a second phone interview.
