Reflect on your experience

  • What parts of the interview went well for you? Poorly for you?
  • Did you feel that your preparation paid off?
  • Examine how and what you would change about your participation in the interview.
  • Gain confidence for your next performance.

Thank the interviewer

  • Be sure to write a thank-you note to the interviewer.
  • Keep the note personal, mentioning specific things that you discussed.
  • Make sure to briefly include things that you might want the interviewer to know about you that you missed in the interview.
  • Check the samples of thank-you letters in the Career Planning & Advising Office!

Have patience with yourself and the interviewing process

  • Don't impose limits on yourself. Many jobseekers will interview many times before they are offered a position.
  • Remain prepared and don't be discouraged by interviewing with several different organizations.
  • Keep in mind that there are many criteria used in the interview process--while working on improving your interviewing technique, remain confident about your personal abilities!
