Ending the Interview
Wait until your interviewer stands up or requests that you do. Give your closing greeting. Thank the interviewer for his taking the time to see you. Offer another firm handshake, and ask when you might know when you might expect to hear from them about their decision.
The Post Job Interview Follow-up
Now that the interview is over, the hard work is over. But, you still have to follow up on the interview. Do not underestimate its importance! Sending a thank you note is the best way to accomplish this. The thank you note should be written with your thanks for their time and consideration in seeing you.

How Long Do I Wait?
If you haven’t heard from the employer within a week, you should call the office to ask if they have reached a decision yet. This is not being pushy; it shows your enthusiasm and persistence. If they haven’t reached a decision, ask when you might expect to hear from them. If they don’t give an answer, try again in another week and so on.
