After interview

Make sure you take the time to reflect and learn from every telephone interview and ensure you always ask for feedback from the employer.

You can learn from every interview whether you get the job or not. These rules will help you make sure you learn from every experience.

The Rules

  • Reflect on how it went. Note down your thoughts on the interview: how well you answered the questions; what you learnt about the role and the company; things you wish you'd said or asked about. You won’t be offered every job you go for and these immediate reflections will help you prepare for the next one.
  • If you don’t hear by the time agreed, phone or e-mail to ask politely if a decision has been made.
  • Ask for feedback. If you’re unsuccessful, phone or e-mail the interviewer to ask how you did. This is another (sometimes painful!) way of learning and improving your interview preparation and technique.
  • Stay positive. It can take time and effort to master your telephone interview technique so don't be discouraged if your first efforts are unsuccessful.
