How To End Your Interview On A High Note

How you end your interview is just as important as how you’ve answered the questions throughout the interview. It is important to leave the interviewer with the best impression of yourself that you can possibly provide. It is a huge relief to have answered that final question, but don’t bolt out of the room just yet! Below you will find some tips on what you need to do to make a lasting impression.

Have questions for the interviewer ready.
Remember that an interview is an opportunity for both parties to get to know each other. Questions provide the interviewer with insight that you are genuinely interested in the position and the company. Ideally you want to have 3 to 4 questions to ask the interviewer. Some topics that you can ask about are the company’s five year plan, industry growth and career path opportunities.

Ask when you can expect to hear back from them.
If it gets to be the end of the interview and you are unsure on when you will hear back from your prospective employer, it is perfectly okay to ask. This will prevent any unnecessary panic while you wait to hear back.

Ask for contact information.
Follow up is key! In order to ensure that you can reach the people that interviewed you, ask for their business cards or simply write it down in the event that they did not bring any.

Be Excited!
The best impression that you can leave when ending an interview is simply to smile, have a firm handshake and let your prospective employer know that you are excited about this opportunity. If you can transfer your enthusiasm then you can rest assured that you’ve left them with a lasting impression.

Happy Interviewing!
