How long should I wait to send a job interview follow up email?

Sending a job interview follow up email can be a good way to find out if a decision has been made about the job that you applied for. However, you do not want to send your email too quickly after the interview to avoid looking desperate. After you complete your interview, do not be afraid to ask the interviewer how long it will be before a decision is made. Then you can follow up immediately after that date has passed. If they do not give you a date, wait one to two weeks before sending an email.
