How long do I wait to make a follow up call after an interview?

The job interview follow up call can serve as an extension of your interview or, at the very least, give you an idea of the status of the position for which you interviewed. Some job interviewers actually wait to make a decision until they've heard from some applicants after the interviews have been completed. These types of job interviewers view the applicants who make the follow up call as those with the most drive and interest in the position. However, you don't want to be overbearing. Wait five to eight business days before you make a job interview follow up call in order to give the job interviewer time to consider her decision.
