You think that what you say during the interview process is the key to whether you get the job or not. That’s true but the way you end the interview is also critical to getting the job as well as to moving the process along. The interviewer should be in charge of the process but you particularly have the opportunity to lead at the end of the interview. This is the point where you can ask what the next step will be. For example, good closing statements should include a summary of the qualities and abilities you bring to the table followed by lines such as “When should I expect to hear from you?” or “What can I do after you offer me the job to most help the practice?” The interviewer will be impressed with your ambition and control of the situation. While other candidates are asking about benefits at the end of the interview, you are confirming your desire to be a contributing member of the organization and someone who has the ability to lead.
