Contact number and email address
A prompt thank you note after your second interview is key to making the right impression and improving your odds of getting the job offer.
A second interview thank you is even more important because the pool of candidates has narrowed considerably and you are almost there. A well written thank you note will help you reach the finish line first!
If the interviewers gave you a specific date by which they would contact you and the date has passed then it is advisable to follow up with an email to find out the status of your application.
If there was not specific time frame provided then it is best to wait about a week after your second interview before contacting the employer.
You do need to be proactive if you have not heard back from the employer after a reasonable wait and contact them. This keeps you informed and reinforces your enthusiasm for the job.
