Follow-Up After an Unsuccessful Interview

I’m bummed.  I was a finalist for a position I really wanted but didn’t get the offer. Is there anything I can do now because I really want to work for this company

Keep in mind that organizations’ hiring needs constantly change. Current employees leave, transfer, and move up. And new positions may be created. If you were a finalist, then you obviously have many of the skills and qualities the organization is seeking. So we suggest that you write a gracious follow-up email or letter thanking them for the opportunity to interview, and expressing your continued interest in working for them should their hiring needs change in the future. By doing so, you’ll leave them with a very positive and professional final impression. And you can continue to network with employees and apply to future job postings at the organization.
