To check on a job application by voicemail, start the message with details, continue with a concise reason for calling, and end the message with a succinct recap of your information. Identify yourself immediately to help the listener distinguish you from other applicants.
Speak clearly, and start the message with your first and last name, your phone number and the position for which you applied. Keep the details direct and to the point, explain the purpose for the call, and provide a reason why they should consider you for the job. A 30-second message is more likely to be heard in its entirety than a long message. Sound interested in the job, and sound interesting. To end the message, clearly repeat your name, phone number and the best time to reach you.
