Creating future opportunities in job interviews

Job interviews are an opportunity for employers to find whether you're a good match for them, but it is also your time to see if the role is a good fit for you.

When you are sure the answer is "no", you can simply back out, or you can see it as another networking opportunity. If you like the company, you'll want to maintain the relationship so that you can become the first choice in another role.

How to use an interview to your advantage

  • Once you've decided the job is not a good fit, it's important to let the hiring manager know as soon as possible.
  • Don't drop out less than a day before an interview, as it may appear unprofessional. 
  • In your rejection, thank them for their time and mention which roles better fit you.
  • Offer a referral to soften the blow.
  • If you can, let them know about your decision over the phone.
  • After you back out, connect with them on LinkedIn or send occasional messages to show you are still interested in the company.
