Call back after being interviewed? What to ask? How do I ask that?
I was interviewed at a T-Mobile Retail store on December 30th, 2011 and today is January 4th, 2012. After the interview was complete they told me they would call back in a week if I was going to be scheduled for a second interview, or if I got the job. Tomorrow would be a week since the interview, so I am wondering if I should call back and if I do call back what should I ask and how should I ask it?
A lot of companies tell applicants that they will get a call back IF they got the job or for a second interview. This is an attempt to lessen the number of calls they get from people who have interviewed. If you do not get a call back then it is safe to assume you did not get the job.
In the future, it is a good idea to send a thank you note to the interviewer within a day or so of the interview and mention something you found interesting about the position or the company.
