How to follow up after an Interview with a bespoke email message

A follow-up email after a job interview can be far more than just a courtesy. It allows the applicant to reinforce their interest and enthusiasm for the job in question and helps them stay on top of the hiring manager's mind. It’s often a critical step many people miss. Here's exactly how to send follow up emails like a pro:

Follow this simple plan:

⭐️ Have a great subject line

⭐️ Address the interviewer by name

⭐️ Thank them for their time

⭐️ Say you’re following up after interview because you are so interested

⭐️ Mention Job Title and what you think you can bring to the table

⭐️ Highlight anything you think they would like that you missed in the interview

⭐️ Thank them again and tell the interviewer that you’re excited to hear their feedback


Simple enough, right? If you don't hear back right away, that's OK—wait about 4-5 days before following up (you can reply to your original thank you note) and expressing interest one more time. 

Good luck and let me know if you get any success with this tip! 🙌
