Recently I had to conduct a technical job interview for an opening at our company. At the end of the interview, I thanked the candidate for their time and told them they were welcome to send me an email, should any questions arise at a later time. My company does not issue its employees business cards, so I suggested to the candidate they could ask the recruiter for my contact info.
However, this approach seems unorthodox and possibly inefficient - they would need two steps to contact me, and might decide to save themselves the trouble and not contact me at all, especially if their question is minor.
I will be working with the hire directly and I would like to give a friendly first impression. Also, I'd be happy to see interest and answer any arising technical questions.
I thought I could just spell out my email (it is firstname.lastname@company), but a name is easy to forget. I would myself have the candidate's email address from their resume, but it's the etiquette that the candidate sends a thank-you email, and not the other way around.
I could also ask management to issue business cards to me, but I am likely to have to interview more people over the following one or two weeks, so I at least need a solution for the meanwhile.
Some additional clarifications: I am the only technical person who will be interviewing the candidates from my location (other people may call in at a later stage), and the person, if hired, will be working alongside me.
What would be the best way to encourage the interviewee to contact me with any questions, and pass my contact info in a natural way?
Note: my question is not a duplicate of this one. I don't intend to use my own cards instead of employer-issued ones, and my question is related to passing my information in a business setting, not in society.
