Keep On Job Hunting

It's not done till it's done. An interview does not guarantee to get the job. You must be aware that you have been interviewed, perhaps with hundreds of candidates who may be more qualified. So, before receiving the phone call to congratulate you on being hired for the business, keep sending your resume, finding job opportunities, and applying for all jobs that match your qualifications.

Send A "Thank You" Message

Saying thank you to the recruiters for selecting you to attend the interview and the time they spent interviewing you will convey more about your personality and professional image. This will highlight your grateful attitude and give your application more top marks.

Assess the situation

Remember what happened just after the interview. What's gone wrong? What went well? What can be done better? Taking some time to ask yourself these questions and answering honestly will help you do well in the coming interview. Being stronger will get you forward your target in the next interview.

Take notes about the questions

Try to write down all the difficult questions the recruiter asked you during the interview, find their best answers, and find how to deal if you meet any other unexpected questions during the next interviews. This will help you to be more confident in convincing the recruiter.

Follow-up

Many candidates do not utilize the opportunity of following up after the job interview. So, they miss an excellent opportunity to show the hiring recruiters that you are the ideal candidate and still interested in the job opportunity. Following up paly a significant role in promoting your candidacy.

Pro Tip: As we are in the "branding" era, your LinkedIn profile is your channel to sell your skills and qualifications. So, spending time edging your presence on it will indeed bear its fruits either by getting a new position or unleashing new inners talents. Impress people and convince talent acquisition specialists of the value that you can add to the business.

Remember that every step during your job search journey matters until you officially get the job, so don't neglect these things that you should do after the job interview to show how you're consistent. Moreover, always remember that persistence and perfection are two sides of the same coin.
