Whenever you have an interview that went well, you are curious if there will be subsequent interviews. Are you still in or are you out? Honestly speaking, it is hard to keep on waiting, so let’s speed up the process and ask, “Am I still under consideration for the job?” It is best to wait a few days, possibly a week before sending out this inquiry email.

Extra Tips To Ask If You Are Under Consideration
- Whenever you write these follow-up emails, keep them short, sweet, and straight to the point.
- Always be courteous and write the email in a professional manner.
- Never appear desperate. If you show desperation for the job, you lose your ability to negotiate.
- Be careful not to come across as overly demanding for an answer. I know it can be very irritating to wait for a response email, but you need to be respectful.
- Wait a few days. Give the interviewer a good 2 or 3 days to respond to your email. In most cases, you will probably get a response the same or next day, but be prepared to wait.
- Interviewing is a patience game and waiting sucks, but you must be patient and wait.
As you go through the interview process, you will probably have several interviews with the same company. There will be a time gap in between each of them. This can cause anxiety and make you wonder, “Am I still under consideration for the job?” The best way to find out is by sending the recruiter a short email. Another good reason to do this is that you are showing your interest in the position, and you are staying fresh on the interviewer’s mind.
