You’ve applied to jobs. You’ve gone on several interviews. How can you make sure the hiring managers don’t forget you? Follow up! This month, make sure to check in with all your leads. Here’s how.
After an interview, 94% of employers expect a thank you note.
If you’re not sure what to write, or if you want ideas on how to check on the status of an application or even reply to a rejection letter, 
I already know what to do after an interview. When else is it appropriate to follow up with contacts and hiring managers?
There are three more situations when following up may make all the difference in your job search.

1) If you’re networking and someone doesn’t respond to your first email or LinkedIn message, that doesn’t mean their answer is no. Maybe they got busy or maybe your email went to spam! Try a different method of contact and remind them of how you know them (or found them) and what you have to offer. But don’t only make an ask; provide value to them, too. Link to an article you think they’ll like or ask them for an informational interview or coffee date where you can learn from their expertise.
2) If a recruiter forgets to get back to you by a certain date, remember how hectic their schedules might be. Be gracious when checking in by acknowledging that they’re working hard to juggle many prospects. Thank them for all their time and energy in helping you.

3) If a contact or hiring manager asks you to get back in touch with them in a few months, let them know when they can expect to hear from you. Mention that you’ve made a note to reach back out to them early, mid, or late in a specified month. Then, don’t forget to set a reminder in your calendar to actually send the follow up. Save notes with any other details you’ll want to recall when you reach out again.

RAM relocated to Baltimore and was starting a fresh chapter in life. They needed a resume to capture their eclectic background and impressive skillset, while being focused enough to show how they could match the specific positions they were interested in. Once that was achieved, our account representatives suggested some job openings they thought were a good match. We were thrilled when they were placed with one of our employer partners, in a position where they can contribute their many talents.

What did you most enjoy about working with Ignite?  
Weekly meetings with my career coach. That human connection greatly helped counter the anonymous, dismissive and "black hole" experience of job searching in the age of online job boards and applicant screening algorithms. 

What have you been able to achieve as a result of working with Ignite?  
I have a job!!! Whether it is a long-term position or a stepping stone - it is a job that matched so many of my criteria and I am excited to be working again after a stressful transition from the west coast this year.

Why would you recommend working with Ignite to others? 
The coaches are professional and on top of what is needed to get a job in today's market - caring about your outcome - and the account representatives can greatly increase your opportunity to get that badly needed face time that allows you to communicate what you have to offer.
