What should be in your follow-up after being interviewed? Career experts Kathi Toll and Ellen Ericson share some insights about how to make an impression even after you've left the interview.
"Upon leaving the interview, thank the person for their time and considering you for the position. Provide a couple of highlights from the interview that intrigued you and confirm next steps."
"It goes without saying, but make sure you do follow-up! I recommend sending both e-mail and a handwritten note, if time permits. Reiterate your interest in the position and if possible mention a particular topic you discussed in the interview. Lastly, reinforce how you can be of benefit to the company."
