When to follow up on an interview?

Here is the daily hiring and getting hired tip:

It is always hard to know when to reach out to an interviewer after an interview. You don't want to seem too desperate for the position, but also want to show that you are interested. The last thing we want is a hiring manager avoiding our call because we start to seem clingy. What is the happy medium?

Here are the three communications that you can send to keep in touch without overwhelming the hiring manger.

1) Ask the interviewer to connect on LinkedIn towards the end of the interview. Tell them it will give them a chance to see more about you than is on your resume. That same day send a request to connect with a short message thanking them for the connection.

2) One day after the interview send over an email to your interviewer. Begin by thanking them and letting them know you are available at their discretion for additional questions they may have. You can try for a little engagement by asking a short question about the company. A busy hiring manager may not take the time to respond to an email, so do not read anything into it if you do not hear anything back immediately.

3) Unless the interviewer states otherwise, one week after your interview give a call to ask the next steps in the process. Tell them you enjoyed the meeting and want to make sure you are keeping up with what needs to be done on your end to move the process forward.

This will keep your name in front of the interviewer, and ensure you do not get lost in the shuffle as the company meets new candidates.
