Search Committee is Hiring, How Do I Deal?

Dear Experts, CAREEREALISM has good advice, but I need some job search advice specific to my field-education. If I apply to a position at a university or college, how do I follow up? Search committees are impossible to get in touch with often and this is a school out of state. I WANT this job but don't know what to do after sending in my CV. I need advice that's less business oriented. Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#264 Information=knowledge=leverage: Schools are social communities-understand the culture. (@RTResumePro) Q#264 But colleges usually DO have a listing of the email/phone# for faculty. I'd try to find a contact there.
