Evaluate the interview


Think about which questions you answered well and which gave you difficulty. Practice the areas that need improvement.

Follow up


Within 24 hours of your interview, send a thank-you email that emphasizes your interest in the position and mentions any facts you may have omitted in the interview. If you don’t hear from the company within the time frame indicated, follow up with a phone call.
