Super confident ka na maganda ang naging takbo ng interview mo. Feel mo almost in the bag na ang trabaho at makukuha mo na.Super confident ka na maganda ang naging takbo ng interview mo. Feel mo almost in the bag na ang trabaho at makukuha mo na.
Pero wait lang, bago kapa magtodo celebrate, remember to do these three things para lalo lumaki ang chances mo of getting noticed and standing out from the rest. These will also help you set a good impression, post the interview.
- Jot down some notes
Make sure that you carry a small notebook with you. Pagkatapos na pagkatapos ng meeting nyo, write down some notes. Record mo sino ang nakausap mo, ano posisyon nya, what you talked about, and anything else that you can think of that came up na sa tingin mo ay importante. Also, make note of any questions you still have. You’ll use this information to help you follow up.
- Send a brief and personalized thank you email.
Ayun kay Whitney Purcell, associate director of career development at Susquehanna University, “The best timeframe to send a thank you email is within 24 hours after your interview.” Take a few minutes to send a quick email to the people you spent significant time with during your visit and interview. Gawin mo to within a few hours of your meeting, and you should definitely try to get to it by the end of the following day. It should be sent during business hours – wag mo naman isend ng madaling araw, no 3 a.m. emails.
- Take time to reflect.
Kung makuha mo man o hindi ang trabaho, you should be able to learn something from this interview. Best way ay take some time to reflect on the meeting after the day is done. Your goal here is to learn from the experience so that you can do better next time, make every interview a learning experience. Be honest with yourself when you consider the experience. Is it really right for you?
- Follow instructions.
If the recruiter or interviewer suggested contacting them by email, don’t call on the phone. Sabi nga ng isang expert si Lynne Sarikas, director of the MBA Career Center at the D’Amore McKim School of Busineess at Northeastern University, “If they tell you it will take two weeks, wait the two weeks.”
- Don’t be a stalker.
Kung sa Facebook, ini-stalk mo yung ex mo, sa job interview game, hindi pwede yun. Alam namin na anxious ka malaman ang result but that doesn’t give you license to pester the employer. You should call the recruiter or hiring manager to follow up at their recommended time (leave a message if you don’t reach them). But if you haven’t heard back after two calls, take it as a sign to move on. Kapag para sayo, para sayo at malamang may mas maganda pang trabaho ang nag-aantay sayo. Try and try until you succeed ika nga.
