I’m a Finalist for a Job, But There’s a Late Entry!

0

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)
