How to write a follow - up email after an interview

Actualizado: 1 mar 2021

What are the best moves to make when you’re waiting to hear back after an interview?

One task that all recruiters believe you should do is follow up after an interview.

So, what’s the right way to do it?

In general, following up within a week is perfectly acceptable, you can send a note to thanks your interviewers for their time and expresses your enthusiasm for the job.

Here are some tips and tricks to help you find out.

  • Address your email correctly

  • Make the subject specific and direct. Something simple like, “Interview Follow-Up for ********” had a reference or requisition number

  • Stick to a couple of paragraphs maximum

  • State the position you were interviewed and when

  • Reaffirm your interest in the position

  • Keep the closing short and simple but enthusiastic

  • Include anything you forgot: If you forgot to share an important related experience or some other valuable piece of information, this is a good place to do so

  • Ask directly for an update and say you look forward to hearing about the next steps

  • Thank them for the opportunity they gave you to interview for the position

  • Proofread your draft before you send it

Feel free to use this template for your own follow-up email:
