Follow-up emails are a crucial first step in building a relationship with the recruiter or company representative you met with during a career event or interview. This valuable connection is not one you want to lose, even if the company does not currently have any immediate roles for you.
When sending a follow-up email, be sure to send it within 24 hours of the meeting and include:
Thank you emails 1) show professionalism, 2) keep you fresh in a recruiter’s mind, and 3) open a communication channel between you and the recruiter. Each of these can set you apart as a candidate in their applicant pool.
TIP: Make your life easier and ask for contact information at the end of your conversation or interview.
