You’ve just finished your interview and breathe a sigh of relief. All your preparation paid off and you had a productive discussion with your interviewer.

But the hard work needn’t stop as soon as the interview is over. A few extra tips could mean the difference between that all important job offer and a rejection letter. Here are some useful Do’s and Don’ts.

Do

  • Say thank you – you can send a brief email or thank you note thanking the interviewer for their time and interest in you
  • Follow-up – don’t be afraid to ask for feedback on progress if you don’t hear back within the given timescale
  • An interview ‘review’ – consider how you answered the key questions and whether there are any areas you can improve upon

Don’ts

  • Put all your eggs in one basket. Keep abreast of other job opportunities – even if you are offered this role you may find the terms are not as favourable as elsewhere
  • Be impatient – don’t stalk the employer with calls or emails as desperation is off-putting
  • Lose touch – let the employer know if your contact details change
