Dear Experts, I have sent in a resume for a job that I really want and followed up with an e-mail to verify the man hiring has received it but still no word. What would the appropriate next step be? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#321 If U know the person received it, but they haven't responded, do U really want 2 work 4 that kinda place? (@beneubanks) Q#321 Patience. Wait 1 week & follow up again. Hiring you is not his 1st priority, but it's your main thought! (@jtodonnell) Q#321 Call & ask 4 person. Lv voice mail. KEY: Can u find some1 who knows hirer 2 say "look at this person"? (@juliaerickson) Q#321 Phone call would be an excellent next step if you have the number. If not, one more email is fine, but no more. (@gradversity) Q#321 Do you know for sure it's still open? Some postings are fake. Reasons for not hearing back often unrelated to you.

Ever wonder how actors push through stage fright?
