Shortlisted Applicant Update

If you’ve been shortlisted, then you’ve got your foot in the door. And it’s time for you to shine at the final stage – the interview.

However, it could be a telephonic, Skype, or face-to-face interview. And this is depending on the employer. When shortlisted:

  • Endeavor to get information about the company.
  • Also, ensure you have a clear vision. Try to figure out why you want the specific position. And how you would be a good fit. Also, go through your application.
  • Additionally, be interactive. It’s an interview, not an interrogation. There is much more to you than your resume.
  • The practice goes a long way. Thus, take mock interviews with your friends or practice speaking before a mirror.
  • It’s rare, but sometimes you do get an offer letter directly based on your application. You start planning the celebration, but remember some points before you go into that party mode: Get it in writing.
  • Also, go over the written offer in detail. And make sure all important details are mentioned and ask questions if you don’t understand anything. Such as work profile, start date, duration, and stipend, etc.
  • Send a thank-you letter to the employer, once you accept the offer.
  • Also, follow up with an e-mail confirming your start date and expressing your enthusiasm for your new role.
