What to Expect After the Interview
- Don't expect instant action
Normally, interviewers don't hire anybody on the spot. Their job is to screen candidates for future interview and hiring decisions.
- What happens next
Even when interviewers are impressed with students, they will rarely make promises. That's because they must review your qualifications with the hiring managers before making commitments.
- How to help your chances
Follow up with a thank you note, phone call, or email confirming your interest and reiterating the points you discussed.
- What if the answer is no
Sometimes it's obvious from the interview that the student's qualifications and the company's opportunities don't match. In such a case, the interviewer may tell you candidly and courteously that there will be no further action.
