The Ugly Truth about Following Up after an Interview
by Stacey Lane - Aug, 2014
Following up after an interview is tough. How much follow up is too much? Does the prospective employer even care if you send a thank you note? Is there even a point to following up? Time for a candid reality check… No one has ever received a job because he or she followed up. No one. Think about it — no hiring manager has ever said “John, I’m so glad you followed up with me.
