How To Follow-Up Applications Through Email Without Raising Eyebrows [VIDEO]
Following-up responses for job applications in Email can be very crucial. By all means, you may end up raising a lot of eyebrows at the cusp of communication. There are big "yes" and "no's" in the correspondence. Here are the best life-hacks in keeping things straight and polite during the follow-up phase.
In doing a follow-up, you should only limit your intentions. Thus, it is highly significant that you put in some dynamic tone in your message. A suggested tip is to add an "In the meantime.." phrase in a section at your Email message page. This will further give the receiver a wrap-up of the entire professional talk you have had accomplished during the interview, Adrian Granzella Larssen stated in the Daily Muse.
Here are the best tips:
1. Show enthusiasm. The opener is the phrase, "in the meantime". You do not simply reach-out, you also show your value as an asset in the company.
2. Be direct. Being direct can set you apart from the rest of the applicants. You simply show your passion and how your drive and passion will help the company realize its vision.
The sample letter below by Ms. Larssen is the standard of an Email that does not raise eyebrows, Life Hacker recommended:
I hope you had a great week. You had mentioned that you'd be in touch with next steps on the hiring process by Wednesday, so I just wanted to check in.
In the meantime, I wanted to share a social campaign that I launched this week. It's already had more than 5,000 shares-the company's second most successful program ever. I think something similar to this would be very impactful for Dolby, and I'd be excited to jump right in and get started.
