Just leave a voicemail explaining who you are and the reason for your call, and say you will call back in a week.

    Three “Must Accomplish” Goals of a Job Search Follow-Up Call

    1. In a friendly tone, give your name and a brief history to remind the Target Hiring Person who you are. Allow them time to respond to what you are saying.
    2. Be sure to express how interested you are in working for that specific company, and be complimentary of the company in some way.
    3. Ask for an appointment, even if it is an informal five minute face-to-face in the lobby. Make it easy for the Target to agree by saying something to the effect of, “I will be in your area Thursday. May I come by for a few minutes and meet you?”

    Record the results of your conversation at the top of the Job Search Reminder Email. Be sure to include the date, the name of the contact, and a thumbnail of the conversation. Also, don’t forget to write the next step in your follow-up, with your plan for when this step should occur.

    Sample note in Job Search Reminder Email:

    2/1/2010 Spoke 10 min w/ Mrs. Perkins. Nice lady. From Kansas City, like Mom.
    No hiring for 3 weeks. Ok to call her after that. Call her in 4w.

If Mrs. Perkins doesn’t seem too rushed, you might venture a personal comment such as, “I was thinking about that you said you were from Kansas City. When I went to Kansas City as a kid, we always used to go to Swope Park. What a great place. Is it still there?” If she wants to talk, let her. You are building a relationship! Then you can move on to points # 2 and #3 above. Get that face-to face-meeting!

    • suitcase number 23, howie!!!

    • My opinion is always one solid and confident follow-up to show interest and reinforce key/relevant strengths. Beyond that and you risk looking desperate or over-focused on this one job. After one solid follow-up, if they like you they will call. Remember, if you are the right solution (person) to their problem (opening), they will be excited to get you back in or make you an offer . . .
