What Should You Do After an Interview?

You’ve just walked out of a job interview. What’s next?

You might want to send a “Thank You” note 1 – 2 days after your interview to express your appreciation to the interviewer. It sets the tone as your first interview follow-up by showing:

  • Your enthusiasm for the position
  • You have the required skills, attitude and experience for the role

Contacting the Interviewer

LinkedIn Message:Most hiring managers are on LinkedIn. Connecting with them online allows the hiring manager to privately view your profile, reminding him/ her of your potential fit.

Crafting your Thank You message

Thank You Message Example

Hi Jeffrey,

I just wanted to thank you for inviting me to your office today. It was great to hear about ABC’s goals to streamline your software, the company’s emphasis on human-centred UX design, and how you see the engineering department playing a role in these initiatives. ABC seems like a wonderful place to work in! I really admire the mission that drives your business, and look forward to the opportunity to work with your team to implement some of the ideas I mentioned around redesigning the homepage.

Please let me know if there’s anything else you need from me to move the process forward.

Best regards,

Quek Si Min

I hope this note finds you well. You mentioned that you’d be making a decision on the HR Manager position by the end of last week. Do you have any updates on the role? Please let me know if there’s anything I can provide to assist you in your decision-making process.
