Tips for Following Up on Your Job Application

Here are some job application tips to keep in mind when following up on a job application:

๐Ÿ‘‰ If you don’t get a confirmation that your application was received within one week, consider following-up. Again, this will vary depending on what the application instructions indicate. Sometimes applicants are specifically requested not to follow-up. Other times, they may list an email address for you to check on your status. But one week is normally an appropriate time to follow-up.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Send a follow-up letter if there is an email or mailing address.

๐Ÿ‘‰ If phoning to follow-up, here are some appropriate fact-finding questions to ask. But remember, don’t demand to know what is happening; be professional.

  • What are the next steps in the recruiting process?
  • Do you know the approximate timeframe for the process?
  • Will all candidates be contacted?
  • Do you need any additional information about my candidacy? (Or briefly share new information that adds to your application.)
  • If you plan to visit the company’s location, mention the timeframe and your eagerness to meet – ask if it’s possible to arrange an interview during your visit.

We hope this is helpful to you!
