Dear Experts, How do you follow up on your resume or application when a career posting asks for no phone calls? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#197 They won't turn away a call from the right person. They say that to keep the annoying people at bay. (@beneubanks) Q#197 Still locate company and call to touch base. Don't ask "did u get my resume?" Ask specific subject related ? (@kgrantcareers) Q#197 Respect "no calls" & use e-mail, snailmail 2 FU w/HR; find contact elsewhere in co 2 speak 4 u 2 hirer. (@juliaerickson) Q#197 If you are a confident speaker who can "sell" well, call anyway. Otherwise, email is best. (@gradversity) Q#197 Echo others--email/snail mail; if u know co. name, do some sleuthing abt situation/needs 2 add value in writing. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#197 Agree w/(@heatherhuhman)-email.
