Job Search Tips: How to Follow Up on Job Applications

Following up is a critical step that often gets overlooked. You're probably competing with several other job seekers for the same job and employers tell us that following up is a great way to stand out and get noticed.

There are three common ways to follow up: email, phone and in person.

1. Following up through email

Email is probably the least scary way to follow up on a job application because you don't actually have to talk to the hiring manager. But that comes with a couple of drawbacks, including not actually getting to talk to the hiring manager.

Your email can and should be short. You don't want to repeat the same stuff that you put into your application or cover letter. And remember to review your follow-up email before you send it out. Treat it just like you would a resume or cover letter, and even have a friend look over it for any mistakes.

2. Following up by calling

If you're going to follow up over the phone, make sure you practice what to say beforehand. You really don't want to be caught hanging up as soon as they answer.

And only follow up during non-peak business hours (this goes for following up in person, too!). For restaurants this means between 2 - 4 p.m., and for retail this means after 4 p.m. on weekdays. A little piece of advice, even though you're on the phone, don't forget to smile. Hiring managers can tell if you're happy or grumpy.

3. Following up in person

Following up in person is a great way to get noticed but if you don't do it the right way, you can stand out for all the wrong reasons.

One of the most important things we can tell you is to dress professionally as you would for an interview. We actually talked to one of our members, Patrick, on our blog who told us that he used to work for a hotel and when people would come in to drop off an application or to follow up, he had to write on their application what they were wearing and how they presented themselves. You never know when you'll be asked to interview. It could be right on the spot and you don't want to be left unprepared so bring along a resume too.

Following up can be scary. Trust me, I know. But it's a great way to set you apart from the competition.

How to Build the Tribe Your Success Depends On

Think about the people in your life who you can count on to encourage you to do more and be more than you might otherwise. Imagine if you had twice as many people cheering you on and supporting your success?

As human beings, we are innately social creatures. Accordingly, we are at our best when we feel a sense of belonging, community and connection to other people. But not just to any people, to people who bring out our best, and when life knocks us down, help us get back up and move on.

Hopefully you have people like that in your life. People with whom you feel safe to confide your struggles and share your dreams. People you know you could call on any time of day to be there for you, who have your back and care enough to tell you the truth, even when it’s hard to hear. People you can trust. Deeply.

The people you surround yourself with either raise or lower your standards, shrink or expand your expectations, broaden or narrow your thinking, dampen or boost your faith in yourself.

Nobody becomes great on their own; it’s the people around you who help you grow into your full quota of brilliance. Which begs the question: Who are you surrounding yourself with?

5 Steps to Set and Achieve Bold Goals

You’ve heard the saying, and it’s well known for a reason: If your goals aren’t big enough that they inspire the socks off you (even if they simultaneously leave your knees shaking), then you’re going to be hard pressed to stay the course over the long term to make them a reality.

But there’s a catch: You need to write them in pencil.

While it’s now accepted wisdom that having a plan sets you up for success, versus having no plan, sticking rigidly to a pre-set course of action can actually work against you in in the longer run.

The key is flexibility.

Put another way, if your Plan A to get from where you are now to where you want to go isn’t working for you, then be willing to change course and go with Plan B, or C or D or Z!

Experience has taught me what researchers have found: Having a plan to achieve a goal can improve your chance of success, but if followed rigidly, it can make you close-minded and unable to identify better and more viable options as conditions change. (And let’s face it, conditions often change!)

Taking all of this into account, as you think about something you’d like to achieve, take the following five steps.
