WHAT TO DO AFTER AN INTERVIEW
No one likes a job interview, but the feeling after of the unknown can be worse. Wondering whether it went well, if you said all the right things, paused too long or should not have mentioned your rather unique hobby, we always have candidates speak to us about what to do next.
So, we have put together a few pointers to help.
Thank the interviewers
Following your interview sending an email to thank them for taking their time out to speak with you is highly recommended. This also gives you the opportunity to mention again why you think you would be a good fit and what you could bring to the team. This indicates that you are genuinely interested in the role, and a nice touch to keep your name in their minds. Especially as a surprisingly 57% of candidates do not do this!
Turn the tables
The interview process should be as much about you finding out if the job is right for you as it is the interviewers finding out if you are right for the job. And the more you know, the easier it will be to decide. By sending a thank you email you also have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the role after you have digested what was mentioned in the interview.
Understand the process
If the interviewers do not openly outline the next steps, ask when they are likely to be making their decision. Their response will usually give you a sense of whether there are any outstanding interviews they have got to complete and when they are planning to be in touch. Being aware of the timeline can save you the stress of trying to anticipate when you will hear back.
Keep a record
It can be hard to recall the details of what was asked or said during an interview, so it is always a good idea to write your thoughts down while they are fresh in your head. This will ensure you remember important details about the job in the event you are offered it, as well as giving you some learning points for any future interviews or areas of development.
Decide for yourself
Rather than waiting for the interviewers to make you an offer, decide for yourself. Is this the right job for you? What would be the pros and cons of taking on the role? What salary and benefits would be right for you? Perhaps this is not the right role for you, in which case you can make the decision easier for the interviewers by withdrawing yourself – this can help keep your reputation in-tact.
If you are unsettled on whether you want the role, hearing whether you have been successful can be a good litmus test. But even if there is no consideration to be had, reflecting on these issues will prepare you for negotiating an attractive offer.
Give a heads up
If you suspect you are in with a good chance, it is worth letting your referees know who they might be hearing from and why. If you give them a bit of background on the role and why you’ve requested their endorsement, they’ll be able to make their reference more relevant to the role – and thanks to your courteousness they’ll probably be more inclined to make it a good one!
Find out why
Whether you get offered the job or not, there are always useful lessons to be learned from the reasons why. Feedback is not always easy to come by after an interview; 83% of candidates do not receive any feedback beyond a rejection after attending a job interview. However, if you are going through a recruitment agency, they’ll usually be able to obtain it on your behalf. Some interviewers will offer a feedback call – if you are given this opportunity, grab it with both hands. It may be challenging listening, but it will be worth it.
