Following-Up International Job Leads and Opportunities
Follow-up is always essential for job-seekers, but perhaps even more important for an overseas opportunity.
Following-up international job leads is a little trickier than in the U.S. You’ll still want to write thank-you notes after job interviews and pursue all job leads, but in some countries and cultures, making the traditional follow-up phone call that we recommend for U.S. job-seekers might be seen as too aggressive and rude.
One way to follow-up is to use a network contact, mentor, or organizational sponsor to follow-up for you.
