Daily Job Search Tip: A Quick Guide to Follow Ups

Tips for following up after applying or after an interview

• Follow up by email or phone with the company you’ve emailed your resume to, but keeps calls to an absolute minimum to avoid harassing hiring managers or even receptionists.

• Always send a thank you letter to everyone you’ve interviewed with. Personalize it as necessary, but keep it relevant, short, and simple.

• If you haven’t heard back within a week after an interview, follow up with a phone call, but again, avoid becoming a stalker!

• Excessive emails or phone calls, or even showing up at the office un-asked, are a quick way to sabotage your attempts to land a job.
