Should I Follow Up With An Interviewer Over Facebook?
After an interview, it's very important to reach out to the employer. But is following up with your interviewer via Facebook a smart move? Each week, we choose one question from our readers and throw it out to our panel of approved career experts to answer. This week’s question:
"Last Friday, I had an interview at a factory and it went better than I could have imagined. The interviewer said he was very impressed with me overall and felt very strongly about getting me a job there. He even said that he wants to find a higher level, more technical job than what I applied for because I deserve better. Three friends who worked there gave very good recommendations for me the same day I was there. "Here's the problem I'm seeing: It's been a week and I haven't gotten a phone call back yet. I can't directly contact my interviewer because the hiring is done through a third party contractor. However, I'm pretty sure I've found his profile on Facebook. Would it be okay to send him a message thanking him for the interview and to ask if he had found any jobs that would be more suitable for me?" - D
