The last episode on our three-part series on how to nail your copywriting interview is perhaps the most overlooked. A lot of copywriters hang up the phone after an interview or discovery call and then sit around waiting to hear back.
That’s not you. You go the extra step. In the final episode of the series, Nicki and Kate talk about what you can do after the interview that will set you apart from the competition.

A Sneak Peek at the Episode
[2:15] Nicki and Kate start the episode with stressing the importance of how sending a thank you note can set yourself above the competition. It is so rare to find prospective employees who send thank you notes. The rate of people who actually take the time to demonstrate that they are interested in something is very low.
[7:05] After you send your thank you note, there are a couple scenarios that could happen. This involves getting hired, another round of interviews, or getting told that the company is moving forward with another candidate. Nicki explains that if the company moves forward with someone else, this is a prime opportunity to ask for feedback. Receiving that feedback could make you marketable in the future, provide clarity, and even just … make you feel better.
[12:30] Don’t ever hesitate to ask for feedback because most people won’t offer feedback to you. Once you know what it was that kept you from that job, there’s opportunity for you to apply that feedback to the next position you look for.
