Check Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter for former
colleagues or friends who currently work at the
company, Hoover says. If you discover a connection,
try to solicit an endorsement from the person or at a
minimum, try to find out the status of the hire and
where they are in the process.

your real-time interview feedback. If it s a warm
reception, then the door s open for you to further

with serial badgering. Oftentimes no answer is an

psychologically traumatizing; in fact, it has been proven
to cause physical pain. It shouldn t be a surprise that
our minds are equipped with powerful mechanisms
such as rationalizations to nullify its affects: Maybe

employer of your progress in your follow-up
correspondence. By offering them tangential,
employer-related information that might facilitate their

directly reflect the corporate culture---but it can. You ll
want to remember this if they ever reach out in the

down the road. Keep in mind that getting no response
from an employer after you have followed up can be one
more data point as to whether you really want to work
for the company.
