Recruiters or HR department is overloaded with resumes and if yours do not stand out chances are even that you might not even get a reply. Hence wait for a week and draft a good email following up on your application and asking for face to face interview. In you email also, try to depict why you are a good fit for this job. Do not overdo and show desperation else you email might even be deleted ! Hence be polite followup twice, once a week.If you do not get response in third week, do not send followup email. It simply means either you are rejected or they might come back to you after months ! We have seen many companies taiking months even on a resume selection process0ReplyLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
