It may seem like your interview is over when you shake the employers hand, leave the facility and head home, but it’s most definitely not. How you conduct yourself post-interview, can significantly improve, or ruin the impression you have made so far.
Within 24 hours of the initial interview, write a follow-up email AND a handwritten note via “snail mail” to the hiring manager, your personnel contact at the company and any other key decisions makers with whom you have spoken. Thank them again for their time and make a point to tell them how interested you are in the job. Remind them about any major points you may have covered in the interview as well as your qualifications.
It may seem like “old school” to you to send a written note, but rest assured, it could likely be the final touch to help seal an employers decision that YOU are the right therapist or special education professional for their school, clinic or organization.
