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.
