An oft-heard piece of career advice is the importance of following-up on an interview with a thank-you note. This Inside Higher Ed article provides a slight alteration to that advice – sit down and write everything you can remember about the interview. A few questions to consider include:
- What did they ask?
- How did you answer?
- What seemed to matter to them?
Completing this task before details of the interview begin to fade can help you to reference specific details in your thank-you note. If offered an additional interview, these notes may help you predict future questions. If not, the notes on your own performance may help to improve your interview skills down the line, for other positions.
The author details other questions to consider in your notes – read them here.
