Are you wondering if you should follow up with the hiring manager or recruiter about the interview you attended last week?
Should you call, email, or wait patiently?
Well, the answer is yes you should follow up. Call, email, anything will do; you following up is giving the prospective employer the impression that you have continued interest in the company and position.

When should you call or draft a follow-up email?
This is one of the questions that you should ask the executive recruiter or hiring manager at the end of the interview. If you forgot to ask then I would suggest you wait for four to five business working days before you draft an email or call.
In this article, I have shared a follow-up email sample for you to use.
