Dear Experts, Recently I was contacted by a company for an available position. They told me to check out their website, fill out an application, and fax it back to them, which I did. I also followed up with them to let them know I'm still interested in the position. I asked them if they needed further information, I would be happy to provide it. I have not heard anything yet. What is the next step? How long do I wait to contact them again? I do realize it takes time, but what is the best way to contact them that would set me apart from the rest? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#210 Write/send a bulleted letter w/your value proposition. Invite co. contact to your LinkedIn network too. (@teenarose) Q#210 Agree with @DebraWheatman , try a hand-written note. (@gradversity) Q#210 Follow-up in about a week via phone. You can also send a handwritten note to make you stand out.

You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
