When an applicant is referred to the employer by a labour office, the employer is obliged to inform the local labour office about the result of the selection procedure within 7 days. When the local labour office is involved in organising the interview, they are expected to inform unsuccessful candidates about the employer’s decision. In other cases, there is no legal requirement for employers to inform applicants about the result of the selection procedure. At the end of the interview, thank the employer for the time taken or even write a letter of thanks afterwards. Somewhat later, the candidate can contact the employer to ask for the result of the interview, unless another agreement was made in advance.
