And more than anything else, follow-up correspondence is a matter of habit. It is so much a part of everyday work, and so much drilled into us by office tasks, that unconsciously, many of us come to associate follow-up-correspondence as an official task. We neglect to cultivate the habit of follow-up-correspondence in every sphere of our lives, whether official or personal. We often neglect follow-up correspondence when not required in formal or office workspace, but with our personal endeavors. It does cost dearly.

Should You Follow Up After Sending A Resume?

May be, may be not. But, you need to apply your mind to the matter of follow up correspondence and take a reasoned decision according to the case.

Sure, in given situations, closely following up a resume with correspondence can seem pushy, or that you are in dire need, but there are techniques of course.

In case, you do not receive an acknowledgement from the place where you sent the resume, it opens up a possibility for follow-up correspondence just to find out whether the resume has been received or not. This is usually safe enough and projects positive outlook.

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
