Follow Up Letter Help
- The Net's Premier Resume Writing and Editing Service
Many executives and hiring managers are busy.
They may have failed to select and notify candidates within one
or even two months of posting an employment ad. Don't let this deter
you. If you applied for a job, follow up. Make them tell you they
rejected you. Never assume they did.
A short follow up letter mailed 3 weeks after
submitting a resume will differentiate you from other candidates
and suggest to hiring managers that you are unusually interested
in the position. A good follow up letter will:
- Remind the employer of your resume.
- Express your continued interest in the position.
- Help you stand out from other applicants.
