Following up with people is an important part of the job search process. Whether it be communicating with recruiters or calling for an update after an interview, following up is a good idea.  What happens after the interview is just as critical as what happens during the interview.

By maintaining communication, you express your interest in the position that you are applying for. It’s easy to get nervous during an interview and forget some things that you wanted to ask about. By following up, you get an opportunity to ask more questions that you may have about a company/job. 

Sending a follow up message can help you stand out. Potential employers will like to see that you have put in the extra effort to follow up with them. It shows that you are serious about the job and that you can handle yourself professionally.  It also helps keep your name fresh in the mind of the recruiter or manager who interviewed you. 

Whether it be by phone or email, following up with someone is a simple but important step in the job hunting process. Best of luck as you continue your job search!  Start your job search now at
