Pre screening interview

2 days ago I had a pre-screening interview from a company that found my resume on Monster. I am extremely interested in this position and am dying to know if they are interested in me as well. As I have never had a pre-screening interview such as this I am wondering a few things. How long should I expect to wait to hear from them again? Is it ok to call them to follow up and, if so, after what time frame?

  • I would wait until at least a week has passed and then call up and ask how long until a decision is made. Tell them you're extremely interested in the position and looking forward to hearing back from them. Keep it short and sweet. And remember, there is a fine line between persistance and harassment, so only call one time.

  • I would follow up a week after the interview. Good luck!!!

  • I always do a phone screen before deciding who to bring in for face-to-face interviews.

    Do your homework; be prepared with great questions and great answers.

    Good luck, and make sure that you send a thank you email.
