The follow-up email to a job application is one part of the job search process that many candidates tend to fumble. Either they don’t follow up at all for fear of being a pest or they follow up repeatedly and actually are a pest.
But, in my experience as an executive recruiter, I’ve seen that hiring managers nearly universally agree that a single follow-up email three days to one week after submitting you application is the way to go. Your goal here is to make your application top of mind and gather information about the hiring process. Just follow these simple rules for writing a job application follow-up email that comes across as persistent as opposed to pestering.
