Your job interview is just the first step and there is a long way to go. So, here we thought of telling you some quick tips that will help follow up with your dream company and increase your chances of getting the job.
Send A Thank You Mail
After your job interview is done, write down a mail to the hiring manager/HR and thank them for the opportunity. This will make you stand out from all the applicants for the job. This doesn't guarantee that you get the job but will surely make the managers notice your profile once again.

Next, she shared that one should appreciate the hiring manager and thank them for taking out time to interview him or her.
Even though you have shared everything with the manager during the interview, it is good to write in why they should be hiring you. Talk about your skills, experience and how the job will allow you to take up new responsibilities and challenges going forward.
Let the hiring manager also know that how you will be an asset to the organisation if you get the job.
Conclude the mail writing that you look forward to hearing from them and hopefully join their esteemed organisation.
End with your full name and contact details.
Drop-In A Check-In Mail
Most hiring managers share the entire cycle of the hiring process. After your interview, you might be given a rough date when you can expect to hear back from the organisation. However, if you haven't heard from them, you can send in a check-in mail.
You can talk about your interview in the mail and share that you have been waiting for them.
Try To Connect With The Team
You still don't know if you will be able to get that position or not but that doesn't mean you lose all hope. Even if you don't get the opportunity, this is your chance to build a contact, relationship with any of the members of the team.
You can connect with the hiring manager or HR on LinkedIn. However, don't go overboard. It should only show as if you are interested in building a relationship with them other than just the job position.
