“I know we don’t talk much but you’re such a good talker”
Outtasite (Outta Mind) — Wilco
I have read a few blog posts recently entitled “what the movie (insert movie title) taught me about my job search.” While my blog weaves in my love of music, I am also a bit of a movie buff, so I figured it was time to jump in with my own take on this theme.
When is the right time to make the post-interview follow-up call?
Is there a right time?
It’s a fine line between calling too early, too often and waiting too long, which can result in outta site, outta mind. But, what do you do when that company is not getting back to you? The timelines of the job seeker and the prospective employer are rarely in sync, so how do you not become Mikey from the movie “Swingers”?
I struggle with this one, generally erring on the side of letting too much time pass. Do you have a rule of thumb when following up? What’s your approach?
