Dear Experts,

If a job description says “no phone calls please,” is it still okay to call and confirm they received your application?

Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:

Q#247 Sure. If you want to be remembered as the “one who didn’t follow directions.” (in other words, NO!) (@beneubanks)

Q#247 Agree with other experts. Try to find another way to follow up (inside connections, email, networking). (@gradversity)

Q#247 Emps look 4 ways to cull, don’t give reason to elim u; cd see if u know pple @ co 2 put in gd wd 4 u. (@juliaerickson)

Q#247 I say no! but U cn use sum1 else from inside. 4 ths vry reason b4 U apply U network 2 find allies. (@RTResumepro)

Q#247 No calls = no calls. Best option to find someone (networking!) in org & have them check on your behalf. (@jtodonnell)

Q#247 No phone calls means don’t call. That is annoying to the hiring manager. Follow the instructions requested. (@DebraWheatman)
