Dear Experts, How long should you wait before following up (to see the progress of your potential employment) after an interview? I was told “we expect to follow up soon.” Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#195 You should send a thank you note w/in 1-2 days. Phone call a week later and every week until decided. (@beneubanks) Q#195 "We expect 2 follow up soon" is default answer if u want 2 follow up, try contacting in one week after applying. (@kgrantcareers) Q#195 Follow up about a week after to maintain top of mind. Keep lines of communication flowing. (@DebraWheatman) Q#195 ALWAYS ask permission to follow up in 5 biz days before interview ends - never leave vague. Call & don't expect much. (@jtodonnell) Q#195 I prefer handwritten versus email thanku-card stock is touched by more people/more diff to dispose of. (@teenarose) Q#195 Not sure f/u has same effect once did. Better to f/u than not. ThankU imm after/int; another in 7-10 days. (@teenarose) Q#195 Follow up with a thank-you note immediately after. Then formally follow-up 4-5 business days after that. (@gradversity) Q#195 Since ur meaty thank-you sent w/in 24 hrs, suggest next follow-up w/in 1 week; including follow-on value hook/msg. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#195 Send thank you note right away and then follow up after about a week or 10 days. (@louise_fletcher) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
