Best Second Interview Tips

Job candidates often ask "How long after a second interview should you hear back?"

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.
