Six Tips for Following Up on Your Resume

By Liz Ryan

Dear Liz,

I spotted what looks like the perfect job for me and I sent a resume in to the company's online application system, as was required. But it has been a week and I haven't heard anything. Now I'm wondering whether I should have done more research to find an alternate conduit to the hiring manager, and wondering whether there are additional steps I can take to boost my chances of getting an interview. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Beth
