Aug 22, 2016

On this bonus episode of Find Your Dream Job, Jenny Foss, owner of shares her tips for how to touch base with potential employers (without being a pest) after you’ve had your initial interview.   She reads “The Best Ways to Follow Up After The Interview”, her contribution to our book, Land Your Dream Job in Portland (and Beyond).

Here are Jenny’s top tips to stay top-of-mind with employers:

  1. Know the next steps. Ask the employers about the process and timeline so you know the best way to follow-up.
  2. Send thank you notes. A simple, but often ignored way to be remembered, especially if you send them to the right people.
  3. Connect on LinkedIn. Create a reason to connect on LinkedIn so you can have ongoing dialog with the interviewer. Just don’t make rookie mistakes when you connect.
  4. Follow-up by email. Know when and how to reach out for updates.
