5. Post-interview telephone calls

Follow-up call

Nothing is ever certain. 
After a successful first interview with a recruiter, you will have further contact with him (second interview, clarifications, taking references, confirmation of your motivation, etc.). Make sure you do not let down your guard over time. A badly handled phone call can introduce doubt where there was none before.

Calls you must remember

  • Inform the consultant at a recruitment firm or the first manager you meet at a company of how the process is progressing: at this stage, he is a partner. You and he have a common interest so don’t hesitate to contact him. He might also be able to advise you afterwards. 
  • Thank them if you are taken on: you are their “protégé” and they may later become allies. 
  • Ask why you have been excluded from a selection process: the recruiters have moved on to somebody else and getting feedback from them is not always straightforward. However, try to get if from an assistant. Highlight the time that you have devoted, and that feedback would therefore be appropriate. Tip: try email. It can sometimes be more effective than a telephone call.
