So, you finished your interview, went home excited to hear back, but now what? Maybe it’s been a few days (or more) and you haven’t heard anything.
I’m going to show you exactly how to send a follow up email after your interview if you’ve gotten no response, with examples and templates.
One WARNING first though: Don’t use these follow-up templates to email the company after one day! It takes time for the company to interview people and make decisions. If it’s one day after your interview, you should be sending a “thank you” email instead (I’ll cover that too).
Step 1: The Follow-Up Email Subject Line
are important. They decide whether your email gets opened, and how fast.
I’d recommend following up with whoever said they’d been in touch. Or follow up with whoever you’ve been talking to for scheduling, etc.
The best subject line, and the one that’s going to get opened faster than anything else, is to simply reply to the latest email between the two of you.
It’ll look something like this: “Re: Interview on Thursday at 10 AM”
They’ll open it immediately because it’ll appear as part of the previous conversation. Much better than starting a whole new email for this.
Step 2: The Body Of Your Follow Up Email
I’d keep it simple and straight-forward. Don’t be shy or unclear. Tell them you’re excited to hear back and wanted to check if there’s an update or a decision yet.
Best follow-up email if you already sent a “Thank You” email:
