Welcome back, everyone! Our topic this week is “Why Action After Interviews is so Critical?” Before we begin, Have you set up any interviews? Had any interviews? Making any progress? If you have, congrats! If you haven’t, go back to last week’s episodes, watch them again and do the ACTION! Either way, go to our Private LinkedIn Membership Community and tell us how you’re doing. We want to hear from you!
As college students and recent grads, it may feel overwhelming to try to enter into your desired career field. Sometimes, it may feel like you’re the only one struggling. But this is not the case! Sharing with our Private LinkedIn Membership Community can help you gain the wisdom of other member’s experience and also help you realize that whether someone is across the street from you or even across states, they’re facing the same obstacles as you.
Waiting to hear back from a job can sometimes take forever. It’s like high school all over again, waiting for your crush to call you back (graphic). The stress of not knowing if your crush liked the date or not is a painful memory. Sadly, waiting for a job interview can bring up those painful memories you want to forget.
If you don’t hear back from the company right away you may start to let your doubts overtake you. You may wonder if you did something wrong or if they found someone more qualified for the position. Unfortunately, your doubts do not serve you one bit. Anticipating a positive outcome can help you keep calm and motivated! Also, taking your mind off things can help. Try reading a book, hanging out with friends, or even try to get back with that high school crush if you’re up to it!
Even though the interview is over, there’s still some work you need to do. Since you want to make a lasting impression after the interview, be aware of your follow-up actions. Your follow-up actions are important to demonstrate who you are to the interviewer.
You want to show hiring managers that you’re thoughtful, grateful, and have follow-up skills. We will show you what steps to take in the next episode. Instead of waiting by the phone, get these things done in the next 2 episodes so you can stand out from your competition! (Sign off) Our next episode is all about “How to Follow Up After the Interview,” see you there!
