Landing a dream job is perhaps one of the happiest feelings anyone can ever experience.
But before you land a job which you always dream of, the most important point of concern is cracking the interview by presenting an impressive profile, so that the recruiter reverts at the earliest.

At times, you need to do certain things just for the sake of doing it, with no high hopes attached to it.
For example, a thank you email might just work well when it comes to the matter of following up with your hiring managers.
However, if you don’t see any instructions, you should still wait at least a week or so before reaching out.
An important factor that employers are looking for in a candidate is someone who is genuinely excited about the position, and following up is one of the easiest and most effective ways to demonstrate just that. But if you end up reflecting an image of an overly desperate candidate, then you’re probably going to get judged on this ground.
Crafting a good follow-up takes a bit of practice, though.
Whether by phone or by email, you want to make sure that you are cool, confident, and able to state your qualifications. The hiring manager will contact you if they want to speak.
