Following Up with Employers

What do you do after you’ve handed out all your resumes? Are you being a couch potato and waiting for someone to call? You can’t stop being proactive just yet. It’s time to prove just how interested you are.

By calling or emailing the employer to follow up on their hiring process it shows you are eager. If the job posting specifically says only selected applicants will be notified or no phone calls then do not contact them. Otherwise, it’s best to wait 2 weeks before following up. Have questions prepared and perhaps introduce the idea you are interested in an interview opportunity.

If you’ve already been to an interview be sure to thank the employer for their time and consideration. You can read more on Thank You Etiquettes on our previous blog post.

For the sake of Shop for Jobs – you’ll have already met with the employer and possibly had an on-the-spot interview. If you’re curious it’s ok to ask when they plan to begin hiring.

Good Luck!
