Job seekers should wait two weeks after applying for a job and then send an e-mail to the hiring manager noting continued interest. The message should state that the candidate is interested in discussing experience and skills and reiterate that the applicant is a good fit for the company.
Applicants can also stop by the business in person to inquire about an interview or a hiring decision a few weeks after submitting the application. Job seekers should allow employers time to sift through application materials and not aggressively inquire immediately after submitting an application. Employers who have not contacted an applicant after one month are typically not interested in the candidate.
