How Do I Stand Out When Following Up?


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?
