Job Follow Up

Keeping track of a job interview is important to give the future boss a real inside view of who we are. Showing interest on a decision after a job interview is important to show our overall ethics and job dedication.

There are many ways to do so, one can try e-mail, handwritten letter a phone call or revisiting the job site to make a spoken inquiry. I like to combine phone calls e-mails and handwritten letters and I do it no more than forty hours after applying for a job.

When I do written mail, I make sure I re-state my name phone number and e-mail address as well as the date of interview or resume post, and then I go ahead to reminding them about my skills my interest on the job opportunity, and what they should expect from me once hired.

I write in a polite but upfront matter, and I always ask for a re-interview. I also learn as much as I can about the job offer the company name and product and whatever relevant concept about that job.

When I ask for a re-interview I do not just say "can I please get another chance" instead I say, or rather write, Let's meet again to discuss all the things relevant to this job offer, how does such and such date and time sound like to you? I do this because ...

  • I never think that just asking for something works well if the person asking sounds like a desperate one. Instead I like to let them know I need the job but I also have a certain pride in who I am and what I do.

Always write letters in a polite matter and make sure they know you appreciate their time to re-visit your application. Good matters, correct writing style, and timely review after interviewing is the key to getting the job of your dreams.

Make notes for yourself every time you post an application or interview for a job, this way you will have first hand insight over good job prospectives. Remember to make sure and keep the details of those jobs you love, even if the job openings has being filled, you never know when the opportunity will present again to re-apply for that job.

Do not forget to keep possible bosses up to date with your personal information like address, phone number and other pertinent information about you. Make a sensitive, professional and respectful relationship with the job interviewers, never miss a point of value to your career.
