Jumpstart Your Career: Why Following Up Is Important

Don't be afraid to make that follow-up!

It’s been two weeks since your interview, but nobody from the company has called yet. You go through all your messages twice, and you constantly ask whether anyone at home has intercepted a phone call for you (even though you and the landline have been practically inseparable). Should you start following up or consider the interview a bust?

If you’re like a lot of fresh graduates, you probably think that your interviewer is too busy to be bothered by a follow-up. That’s not necessarily true. In fact, according to the book Jumpstart Your Career, “Some companies deliberately wait one to two weeks before making job offers” because they want to know which applicants are diligent enough to make the follow-up!  

Besides, when you follow up, you show your potential employer how interested you are to get the job. It also puts you in a good light, as a survey reports that 15 percent of recruiting managers would not hire someone who fails to send a follow-up note.

But whether your interviewer is part of the percentage or not, we say do the all-too-important follow-up. After all, what do you have to lose?
