FOLLOW-UPS AFTER INITIAL CHATS
I suggest you follow up with the News Director every Thursday and emphasize your interest. I will contact them on Tuesdays.
Organizations deeply appreciate persistence, as long as your persistence is generous. Sending a flurry of check-in emails is usually a bad idea, but asking thoughtful follow-up questions by email and volunteering your knowledge to a potential boss can be a winning strategy.
If your persistence is, “What about me? What about me? What about me?”, that’s not generous.
If your persistence is, ‘I’ve been thinking about your company, I’ve been researching a little bit more about your company, I’ve had a few ideas about the conversation we had,” those are generous acts of reaching out.
Motivated job seekers should ask if there is anything they can do during the hiring process to demonstrate to the employer that they are right for the role, and then follow up to prove it.
Ask the person interviewing, “Is there anything you are curious about relative to my ability to perform this job that I can do between now and the next call that could show you how I can perform?”. Actually start the work!
Nontraditional methods of communication can sometimes yield a surprise reaction. We advise reaching out to people you are eager to connect with on Twitter or Instagram instead of simply sending an email. On Twitter, you can have a conversation with someone who may never return your email.
