To follow-up or not to follow up?

November 15, 2017

Looking for a job is stressful. Many applicants question whether to follow up or not after applying for a position. Careerbuilder.com suggests some strategies to figure out the best way to do that.

  • Many employers have an automated system that will send a reply as soon as you have applied for a position. If you have not heard back within 24 hours of submission, it is worth calling in to find out the status of your application.
  • Following up on an application is one of the easiest ways to show prospective employers your interest in the job position. Sometimes tracking can be a good thing; however, be cautious to not seem desperate or inconsiderate.
  • It is always a good idea to send a thank you note or email to your interviewers.
  • A graceful follow up letter even when turned down can show your interest in the company and will keep your name on the hiring manager’s mind. It could pay off later down the line.
