The job search process can be daunting. You have to spruce up your resume, nail your cover letter, and go on a string of interviews that can be more nerve-wracking than a first date.

Use this email template to follow up after a job interview.
Let’s say it’s been a few weeks since your job interview and you haven’t heard back. Take the initiative by politely following up. It will show that you are still interested in the position and the company. Instead of just asking if they’ve made a decision, offer to share information and complete something that would be helpful to them.
