Following up isn't optional

Following up after job interviews & career fairs isn't just a good idea — it's a requirement! So watch this episode and we'll tell you everything you need to know to do it right.

Too busy to watch? Here's what you need to know:

  1. After a career fair or interview, you have 24 hours to follow up.
  2. Unless expressly told, don't call. Always follow up by email.
  3. Try to create a connection, remind the person about yourself.
  4. Look for contacts at a company when you apply.
  5. Apply via the company's Applicant Tracking System, but try to establish contact with someone at the company in parallel - so you have an avenue to follow up / ask questions.
  6. Be polite!
