I don’t know about you, but I always have my mobile phone on me. Well, not only on me but practically glued to me.
Young people are used to living on a tight budget but once you start climbing the career ladder, you should have a bit more money to play with. That’s great and it should take some of the stress off, but it’s important that you’re making good financial decisions as you start earning more so you don’t end up in a bad position later in life.
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.

Some benefits include demonstrating your interest in the position/organization, clarifying the decision timeline, and easing your mind that your application was received!
In this post, I will share how to follow up with an application without sounding pushy. Let’s open up your mail inbox and get started!
