This is a question probably older than time itself.
We tweak our resume, perfect our cover letter, and send it off in a pretty package to the hiring manager’s e-mail. But sometimes, it is almost as if our application is in Human Resources limbo. We wait days…then weeks…and we still haven’t received a response.
