I had an interview today. It was a phone interview and I feel there was one question I could have answered more thoroughly. I'm sure they have already made their decision but I was wondering if it would be appropriate for me to email the principal and add what I felt I missed in my answer...just in case.
What do you think?
Well I think I would just leave it , and see what happens. You will always second guess your self, I am sure you did fine. If he wanted you to alberate then I am sure he would have asked you, if he wanted more info from you. I would not worry about it, hope you get the job.
I agree that you should just leave it alone. Good Luck to you! When should you hear?
It is definatly appropriate to send a follow up letter after an interview, thanking the interviewer for his or her time and re stating your strong points and interest in the position. I guess in this email age, an email would be okay too.
You could make short mention of the point you feel you didn't make - sneak it in in a sentence or two, but do not say - I didn't think I was clear on this, or in any way make it sound like you are sending this note just to clarify or elaborate on what you may have missed.
When I was interviewing, I always sent a follow-up thank you to the interviewer.
I agree with Ame - you could say something like, I wanted to amplify on my response to the question about ?? and point out that my experiences is ???? - but keep it brief.
I agree with Ginny & Ame, but I would probably make it a letter, not an e-mail. That would seem more formal.
I would do a letter rather than an e-mail.
I agree a letter would be more appropriate, but it is, as we know, snail-mail. In this situation of a telephone interviewing process, they may be moving very quickly. If you can hand-deliver a letter that would be best, but otherwise I would opt for email simply because they already set the informal tone by a telephone interview.
Let us know what happens.
