I recently had a job interview for a software developer position at a local company. It's been about a week and the interviewer just e-mailed me today and mentioned that he thought I interviewed well. He also told me that I was the first person they interviewed and they wanted to interview other candidates to compare and contrast. That seems reasonable.
After the interview, I felt that I came across a little weak in one particular area (the only experience I could come up with was something that wasn't very challenging). It's then that I realized that I had forgotten to mention a couple projects that I had completed. I've been regretting that omission, and looking for a way to let the interviewer know about said projects.
That brings me to my question. Should I use this follow-up e-mail from the interviewer as an invitation to mention those projects in a response? Or, should I speak more generally and let him know there's some experience I forgot to highlight out of nervousness (which is true by the way)? Should I not bring it up at all?
P.S. If someone can come up with a better title, then please change mine. I'm not the best when it comes to those.
