Follow Up to Stand Out!

Following up with employers is one of the most important parts of a job search. It’s a great way to stand out from your competition, and it shows employers that you go above and beyond to reach your goals!
After a Career Fair or Networking Event:
  • Gather business cards and send thank you emails, letting them know how great it was to talk with them.
  • Reiterate your interest in their company or open position.
  • Set up a follow up meeting (perhaps an informational interview).
After an Interview:
  • Always send a thank you note right away to every person at the company who you talked to or helped with your interview process.
    • Be sure to personalize each note with something specific from your conversation with that person.
  • This can be an email—send the day of your interview, or the morning after.
  • This can also be a hand-written note.
    • If you choose this option, email interviewers right after your interview to let them know a note will be coming in the mail.
  • Here’s a great article on formatting thank you notes
After Applying for a Job:
  • It is very important to try and get a contact within a company or find out the name and email of the hiring manager to make this process much easier!
  • Depending on how you applied for the job, there are different ways you can follow up. See below for a helpful flow chart.
