Maybe your resume stood out, maybe it won you a coveted interview invitation. The’re is no doubt. And somewhere here the question arises:
“Is there anything I can do after the interview to increase my chances of getting the job?” The answer is YES.
There are some things you can do, not only to stimulate an already successful interview, but also to save perhaps one that did not go so well.
Attention! A very thin line separates the persistent candidate from the annoying one. Although we will present some things that a candidate can do after the interview, it does not mean that the more he does, the better. The choice of how to proceed should be strategic, choosing only what suits each case and that it could really highlight itself.
An email within the next 24 hours is a must. He thanked the interviewer for his time. Even better, a handwritten note, which will give a more personal note.
Send or Write Article
Submit an article about what was said between you during the interview. Better yet, write one on your blog and post it. This will show your knowledge of the industry.
Look at your contact network
If you can thank for the interview by email.
Handle the rejection smartly
How you respond to a rejected email may play an important role in the future. Many recruiters have hired people who have previously turned them down because of the great impression they made during previous interviews. Answer politely, wish all the best to both him and the company and let him know how much you appreciated both his time and the opportunity he gave you to tell them in person.
Stay in touch
Once every 2-3 months, you can display a personal message to the hiring manager by sending him an article that you think may be useful, or some of your suggestions. It’s good to show up here and there. Maybe the company is in the process of hiring new employees.
Think your performance. After a while, you will not be able to remember every detail, so as soon as you get home write down what you think worked for you and what did not. Try to think of alternatives to what did not help, so as not to repeat the same mistakes. This maximizes your chances of success for the next interview.
