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,
W
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,
