FAQ #121: Ask Rod Colon

Pin It Now!
Dear Rod,
Although the Client HR person, said he would see about getting me another interview and send me the tests I haven't heard back from him. I emailed him an after-interview-thank-you letter earlier in the day. Would you advise calling him on Monday?
Best wishes,
Dear W,

Key to closing any conversation is preparing for the follow up. When the HR person indicated they would get back to you say the following: "When can I expect to hear from you or someone in the organization?" They will than give you some type of time frame. 

You will then say: "Excellent, if I donot hear from you by (whenever day say they would) is it ok for me to call you the next day " This methodology helps you to have a clear follow up date if you do hear from them. 

What can you do now? 
Follow up with them 5 business days after your last conversation with an email and telephone call. Once you do this follow up each week - once per week. Always be positive in the call and email. 

You can find more information on this in Never Eat Alone - Keith Ferrazzi - chapter on Follow up or Fail.

Best wishes and keep networking alive,
