Working in the medicine field you know that you have to follow up with your patients. Had J.D. and Dr. Cox not followed up with frequent patient Jill Tracy, she might have died. Things are no different when interviewing for a position.
Without follow up your chances for the job could die. The ways in which you go about the follow up can either categorize you as an amateur or a pro. So, how do you follow up like a pro?
Before the interview comes to end, make sure you ask the interviewer for the next steps and for their business card. This will come in handy when sending the thank you note. If you have used the services of a recruiter, call them immediately after the interview before sending the thank you. Some clients prefer not to be contacted directly by candidates and getting expert advice is always better than guessing.
Following up helped J.D.’s patient and it will help you in the job hunt.
