Questions Answered – Following up with an Employer

“I recently applied for a job as a marketing assistant for a local company. There wasn’t really a deadline on the posting and I haven’t heard back from them yet, but it’s driving me crazy wondering if I might get interviewed or not. Should I call the employer or would that seem pushy?”

Yes, I think it’s a good idea to follow up with the employer. First, you want to make sure your application materials were actually received. Second, it’s nice to know who all the “players” will be in your job search. If you’ve applied to multiple positions, you’ll eventually have to decide with which organizations you will want to interview and, when the time comes, which offers you’ll want to seriously consider. Knowing each employer’s hiring time frame will be useful in your decision-making.
