Important Tips On How to Follow Up After Submitting a Resume. Connect with me also on my social media sites:
You've submitted your resume and now you have one more step.
Following up is crucial in today's competitive market.
Here are a few ways to properly follow up on the resumes you just sent out.
The Proper time to follow up is two to three weeks after submission.
You never want to come across as pushy or annoying, you simply want to make it known that you are highly interested in the job and really see yourself as a good fit for the company.
The Best approach to following up is sending an email BUT a handwritten note is best. An email or note gives them time to check out your resume and get back to you on their terms. Keep it brief. If you send a long email or note, chances are it will get deleted or not read in full.
Think of it as a "thank you." Basically, you want to thank them for considering you and let them know that you look forward to hearing from them soon. Don't reiterate why you're a perfect candidate and start listing off your qualifications -- that's what your resume is for.
Stay positive. Keep the note positive and never be demanding of the hiring manager. If they like you, they will contact you.
Be realistic. Just because you sent a follow up email or note doesn't mean you're going to land an interview. Keep applying for jobs and keep following up on other opportunities. Stay open minded.
