3 things you need to do after an interview

So you completed your interview and whether it went badly or went well there are three things you now need to do. In fact, the worst thing you can do is to not do anything at all. 

Follow up

You should always follow up after an interview. If it went well then it is great to follow up to make sure they remember you and if it went badly, this is your opportunity to make amends.

If it went well you can send a thank you note similar to the following template:

Dear-----

I just wanted to say thank you for seeing me earlier and interviewing me for the role of ------. I really enjoyed meeting and speaking to you about the role.

If you have any further questions you’d like to ask me, please feel free to give me a call on ------ or pop me an email and I’d be happy to answer them.

I look forward to hearing from you

Thank you again

If it didn’t go quite as well as you hoped you can base it off the following thank you note template:

Dear -----

I just wanted to say thank you for seeing me earlier and interviewing me for the role of -------. Whilst I really enjoyed meeting you, I don’t feel that I made the best first impression and would really like to apologise and make up for this.

I feel I could have answered -------- better by explaining --------. If you have any other questions you’d like to ask me, please give me a call on ------- or send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you

Thank you again

You can send it as an email, a handwritten note or even come up with something more creative and fitting to the company you are applying to.

 Don’t stop job searching

Even if you think you nailed it and the job is yours, it is always worth continuing your job search for many reasons. For one, you may find a better job to apply for. You may also find that you don’t get the job you interviewed for or that their hiring process drags on and you can find a better opportunity in the meantime. For whatever reason, it is vital to make sure that you continue your job search so that you don’t miss out on great roles that might be out there.

 Review how it went

It is really important to take each interview as an opportunity to learn and grow. You need to think about what went well and what didn’t, how can you improve on the negatives? Was there something you did not have enough knowledge on, or a question you struggled to answer?

Knowing these things will help you see where you can improve so you do better in future interviews.
