Job interviewing is a process that consists of much more than submitting an application, doing an interview and getting hired or not. Another aspect of the process that should be gone about strategically is the follow-up process. It is natural to want to contact an interviewer or recruiter after an interview to know whether the position has been secured or if it is time to look elsewhere. However, it is important to avoid being too pushy, too casual or too informal when conducting a follow-up. Here is some general guidance on how to follow up after an interview. Send A Thank-You Email Before a follow-up email is of any concern, consider sending a thank you email after the initial interview. A thoughtful gesture is to send a personalized thank-you email to each person you interviewed within 24 hours of the interview.

How to Acquire High-Paying Clients as a Freelancer

Here’s the thing about being a freelancer: there are a lot of gigs out there. However, many companies see the gig economy as a way to get professional services at the lowest possible prices. If you’re a full-time freelancer with expert skills, this can be incredibly frustrating. Over the past few years of freelancing, I’ve developed some of the best practices for engaging with high-paying clients. In my experience, sites like Upwork, Fiverr, or Freelancer have not been fountains of high-quality, high-paying clients. Here’s my advice on how to utilize these sites to your advantage and take your freelance game to the next level: 1.

Report: Most Presidential Candidates Aren't Using This Simple Feature To Protect Them From Hacks

Nobody wants random people accessing their emails, especially if you’re running a presidential campaign. After all, it wasn’t too long ago that Hillary Clinton’s own campaign emails were breached. Despite that cautionary tale, almost every 2020 presidential candidate isn’t using a basic email security feature. Agari — an email security company — released new data that showed only Elizabeth Warren uses both email authentication and advanced email security. Warren is also the only candidate to use domain-based message authentication, report, and conformance policy, or DMARC, TechCrunch noted . DMARC is an email security feature designed to reduce the potential for email abuse by using Sender Policy Framework (SKF) and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM). As outlined by TechCrunch, the feature is pretty useful because it can verify a sender’s email and mark emails as spam or can reject them if an email can’t be properly validated. “For US congressional and presidential candidates with...
