    Default What should I do after I email resume?

    Hi all and Tia,
    I've never in my life had to go to an interview as such. I usually fell into my jobs and was offered jobs from other companies so I never really had to sit an interview or send a resume.
    I've been a SAHM for over a year now and found a position available part time only few days a week which is perfect for me at a great college who is looking for teaching staff which is what I was looking at doing after I have all my kids, but thought it would be great to kick it off now since it's available.
    My question is I sent my resume last week on Tuesday. Is there a time frame I should wait before contacting the guy who is conducting the interviews? Do I email or call? And what do I say without sounding pushy if they have found a suitable candidate or if they wanted to meet me. Or do I just let it go and wait to hear from them??

    In the past I have always followed up with a call or email if a number wasn't provided, after the closing date or if there was no closing date a few days after submitting. I would say I had submitted my resume on said date & was very eager about the position & what the next step was, ending with thanks & look forward to hearing from you. In all cases my follow up was taken very well & I got the job Some if not most employers will like that you follow up!

    How did you go??

    I never follow up after I submit my resume, whether there is a closing date or not. The way I see it is the employers are either interested or they're not. And if they are they will contact me.

    I am an RN and sometimes it cal take weeks for them to just sort through the resumes they have been inundated with.

    That's what I do, I never follow up.

    My bro in law is a recruiter and I always call to follow up his advice is it brings his attention to you and makes you look like your motivated. That's his take anyway he also rarely reads cover letters lol
