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.Β 
  • In your rejection, thank them for their time and mention which roles better fit you.

  • After you back out, connect with them on LinkedIn or send occasional messages to show you are still interested in the company.
