Re: follow-up call after job interview?
I'm trying to help a buddy of mine get a job...
I found a good position that he hadn't noticed in his search, and he submitted for it, did a phone interview, and then was called in for a series of face-to-face interviews, which he said went well.
Now a week has gone by with no word. I've been advising him throughout this campaign, but here I'm torn. Should he call them, to "check in," or would that be an annoyance? He was told there would be a thorough background check for security reasons, which might slow down the decision making process. With this forewarning, perhaps a follow-up call might seem pushy. Or is it just a good way for him to show his enthusiasm?
This guy interviews well, has great people skills, and is a "fit" for the job requirements. So I'd hate to see this one slip through his fingers. Seems to me we've discussed this before, but I was unable to find this topic covered during my search of the Archives.
