You just finished a phone or more important a in-person interview. What is the first thing you need to do once you finish? CALL YOUR RECRUITER!
Your recruiter will be talking with the client very shortly after your interview and needs information from you to most effectively represent you. Many times this is the conversation that can make or break the deal. Some candidates go through the entire preparation and interview process only to disappear from the face of the earth after an interview. However, the recruiter needs honest, insightful feedback from you – whether you’re interested in the specific job or whether you’re no longer interested in relocating. Recruiters take their direction from you. If you are interested in this position they will do all they can to help you get an offer. If you are not interested, they need to know why. That will help them fine-tune your search and key in on specifics that are most important to you.
Tell your recruiter everyone you met, what questions were asked of you, and how you responded to those questions. If you feel you didn’t give a good interview, the recruiter might give you a more objective opinion. And if you don’t feel like you gave a good answer to a question, the recruiter can potentially smooth things over with the interviewer. The recruiter will also share with you feedback from the interviewer that will help you continue with placement, whether it is with the current client or another organization.
The recruiter will need to know if you’re still committed to a job search and how interested you are in the position that you interviewed for. At this point, you should indicate if there is any other interviewing activity that will prevent you from accepting an offer.
