This is not an article about how to write a follow up email after a job interview. It’s about what you should be doing IMMEDIATELY after a job interview. Typically, most people come out of the job interview hoping they answered the questions well. Some are relieved that it’s finally done, others wish they could do it again.
But here’s what you should do IMMEDIATELY after a job interview:
1) Note every question that they asked you during the interview
And I mean every question, even the ones you thought you answered well. And you should note all this down when your memory is fresh.
2) Think about how you answered
Relive the moment you answered the questions. Look at how the interviewers responded, including non-verbal feedback. Were they crossing their arms? Frowning? Or were they smiling and nodding? Was it followed up immediately by another question? If you could answer the questions again, how would you answer it?
3) Practise your answer until the delivery is perfect
Not only should you rethink some of your answers, you should also practise actually verbalising your answers. The delivery of your answer is sometimes more important than the actual content, because often there’s never a right answer, but they way you answer will show confidence and a clear thought process.
