Here Is The Email You Need To Send When The Interviewer Hasn’t Contacted You Back

Bruh, they still aint called you back?!

By now you have applied for the job, had countless of interviews, and a few weeks have passed and you have NOT heard anything back.

Haters will say this means that you didn’t get the job, but I’m here to tell you ISSA LIE (or it’s a good chance that it is a lie. Sometimes, the recruiters are so boggled down and busy that they are unable to hire candidates as quickly as they would like. Also, often times, once the recruiter or hiring manager has decided that they want to hire you, sometimes (depending on the company), they have to get written approval from their boss, their boss’ boss, their boss’ boss boss, and so on before they can call/email you with the official offer. I’m sure you think this is process is long and insane but ISSATRUTH for some companies.

So before you lose all hope on your dream job, I recommend that you fearlessly and persistently follow up with the recruiter/hiring manager. The best and most recommended way to follow up is via email. If you have writer’s block and are unsure on what to say, here is a great template that you can customize and send. #thankmelater

Hello [insert recruiter name],

I hope all is well. It’s been a few weeks since my interview, so I am just following up to see if a decision has been made regarding my application. Please contact me at your earliest convenience as I am eagerly waiting to hear back from you.

Thank you,

[insert your name]

 

Typically after sending an email like this, the recruiter will respond back. In the event it’s been 4-5 business days and they still haven’t said a mumbling word, send them this email:

Hello [insert recruiter name],

I’m sorry to disturb you as I know you are probably very busy. I interviewed for the [insert job] position a few weeks ago and I have not heard anything back. At your earliest convenience, please send me an update as I am hoping to move forward in the hiring process and join your team.

Thank you,

[insert your name]

 

If the recruiter STILL doesn’t respond, I recommend to send them this final email:

Hello [insert recruiter name],

I met with you a few weeks ago regarding the [insert job] position. It’s been a few weeks now and I have not received an update on my application status. In the event I do not hear back from you soon, I will be continuing my career hunt. I am still very interested in joining your team, so if you do not find me as a good fit for “X” position, please consider me for future opportunities within your company.

Thank you,

[insert your name]

 

Now I know you may think the final email is a little aggressive, but I think you should be aggressive when job hunting. I believe the more persistent you are, the more the hiring manager will understand your passion and will love that you take initiative. An individual that I recently hired actually sent me the last email mentioned above and it made me like her even more. As a result, I made it my own job to make sure her offer went through quickly so that we could get her on her the team.

In conclusion, a person that is persistent and actively seeks out opportunities will always win over someone that does the exact opposite and depends on others to give them chances at life.

Which one will YOU be?
