Following-Up with Employers
Don't just sit there - you can do something!
- If you DO have an employer email address/contact: send a brief, polite, personal note reiterating your interest and inquiring about your application status. (See sample note below)
- If you DO NOT have an employer email address/contact: use LinkedIn to find the recruiter/university recruiter/technical recruiter at that company and use LinkedIn's "Connect" + "Send Note" option.
Sample Follow-Up Note to Employer/Recruiter/Hiring Manager
Pro Tip: If you applied to the company through their main website but the company is also on Handshake, make sure to apply through Handshake as well! Employers often look to Handshake first to fill roles before reviewing the larger applicant pool from their website.
