What is an appropriate way to follow-up after an interview? How long should I wait to hear from them, how often should I follow-up, and what should I expect to hear?

Great question! A great way to follow up after an interview is with a nice thank you card, or via email. You do not need something extremely long but a short note thanking them for their time and letting them know you are still interested in the position. Each company is different in regards to getting back to the candidates but a week or so should be appropriate to at least check in. Good Luck with your search!!

Hi there- I think it's always best to send a quick note to your interviewers within 2 days of the interview; email or hang written is fine. Follow up from employers varies quite a bit depending on how many folks they have in the interview process. It could be anywhere from 1-2 weeks, but someone should remain in contact with you.
Thanks!

This is a great question! I think an email the following day simply thanking them for their time and letting them know you can provide additional information if they need it is a good way to maintain that relationship and let them know you are interested. However, in this email I would refrain from asking about if a decision has been made since it should usually take more than just a day. When you near the end of the interview, I always recommend asking when you should be hearing back from them. That way you know when to send that follow up email asking for a decision. If they say you won't hear back for two weeks, I would wait two weeks before sending that follow-up email checking in. I hope this helps and good luck with your job search!

Following up after an interview is optional, but I would strongly recommend sending a thank you note. Thank you emails/notes are commonly sent within 48 hours of the interview and should include: thanking the interviewer(s) for their time, how your experience and skills would contribute to the team, and expressing your interest in the role. At the end of the interview you can ask what the next steps are and the time frame on when you should expect to hear feedback from the interview. If you haven’t heard back within the outlined time frame you can follow up with a brief email reiterating your interest in the position and ask if a decision has been made.
