Career Coaching by Former Fortune 500 Recruiters

How Long Do You Wait To Follow-up?

I had an interview with a small financial services firm this week. I thought it went well and the interviewer (in this case, the owner) muttered that he would decide to hire me by the end of the day. 3 days have passed and I have not heard anything. He seemed like he would tell me either way. I really want the position and it seemed like we connected. How long do I wait before contacting him? What do you suggest I do or say?

While I normally advise waiting a business week before following up, read what I wrote instead in my latest post for TheGlassHammer.com:

    Do you have any favorite stories from school?

  2. Mary, follow up is as important for students as experienced. The campus recruiting process is several rounds so you want to be remembered during the gaps. Good etiquette applies to both students and experienced in this arena.
