We’ve previously talked about always taking the call and accepting an interview when the opportunity comes up. What do you do if after the interview you’ve decided this job isn’t the one for you? As nerve-racking as it may be in the moment, it will always be worth it to trust your gut feelings now than to regret it later.
The most important thing is to remember you as the interviewee hold half the power. If something feels off about the job or the management or it just isn’t a good fit (and you either currently have a position or have another interview lined up) you can do one of two things:
- wait for the interviewer or recruiter to reach back out to you (typically this is for a second interview) OR
- send the interviewer a note thanking them for the opportunity and asking to withdraw your application.
