Interview- Research, Prepare, STAR Technique
What To Do After An Interview
- With an email AND a handwritten note/thank you letter to your potential employer. Make sure that you reference conversations, discussion, and notes from the interview
- Take a minute to write down everything you remember about the interview
- This will help with the post-interview follow up email and thank you letter, but it is also an opportunity to grow and improve for future interviews
- How did you respond to the interview questions? Did you use the STAR technique? Was there anything that you forgot to mention? Did you say anything that you wish you hadn’t? Did your responses seem strong, weak, or somewhere in between?
- What was the rapport between you and the interviewer? How was your body language during the interview? Did you observe any noteworthy body language of the interviewer (i.e. did he/she smile or nod during any of your responses?)
- Self-evaluation often leads to self-growth. We always have the opportunity to improve, so use this experience as one of those opportunities!

- Develop self-confidence
- Practice what you would say in response to a question (STAR technique)
- Observe your own body language
- Learn from any mistakes
- Make substantial improvements before the interview
