Dear Experts, I went on a second interview today and found out I beat out 9 candidates and am the finalist for a job. However, an employee just referred someone and they feel obligated to bring this person because there is a referral fee program at the company. What can I do to stay in the lead and get this job! My interviews are done, so I have no way of finding out how the other person compares. Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#333 I would follow up and reiterate my interest in the position. There isn't much else you can do. This happens alot. (@gradversity) Q#333 Stay in contact, and make sure you've sent a thank you detailing how well you'd fit. (@beneubanks) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
