Following Up On A Electronic Submitted Resume and Application

I have submitted multiple electronic resumes and applications and I am wondering if I should follow-up with the company? Many of the resumes and applications I know the company and have researched them. I am able to find sometimes the HR person. There are several positions I am deeply interested in but not sure if a call, email, or some other contact should be made. Any thoughts or guidance?

I usually on my cover letter State,Thank you for this opportunity.

I give up!!!

I have applied for almost 4,000 jobs in the last year and a half. I got my masters degree in Psychology with hopes of getting a good paying job. I’m lucky to work at a gas station making minimum wage!!! It’s pathetic how companies are hiring only for looks. I can’t get a job to save my life! For those who don’t believe me just ask around. I’m not drop dead gorgeous but I’m not that bad. I have 2 kids that are starving because their mother can’t…

Hey Tammy, what city & state you live in?
Thanks

I'm honestly so drained.

So basically to sum it all up. I just turned 17 and have been going job hunting for weeks. I've walked a whole 2 hours in the piping hot sun just to fill out a job application only to be boosted up but then not even a call back. I have been honest with everything starting off with it being my first job but literally no one will hire me. I even went to save a lot only to be ignored. I've never had a criminal record and I go to a catholic private…

Fill out apps online first then go in-person with date applied to follow up on applications. Save time. Volunteer until someone…

I feel like giving up

My town is really fierce competition for jobs or has lack of one's that differ from needing wine experience. I applied to 30 and still no job. Im getting frustrated with how much experience I have or seeing their workers not doing much when I go to interview but they don't offer me the job. They love my resume always and is impressed but there's always one person with a little bit more experience for me. Where I live you need more than 1 job…

Hang in there, Jessica. Even though there is a lot of competition where you live, generally speaking, there is a nursing…

Frustrated

Hello Everyone. Just need to express my frustration in trying to find a job. I am 58 years old too young to retire and apparently too old to get hired. I have excellent work experience of over 38 years in the financial sector. Automation has rendered my position as obsolete however i have experience in online settlements that should allow me to transition over to automated functions. I have been searching now for over a year and after well over…

You will be fine man. Just be opened to new opportunities and use your experience front and center. Now with the experience you…

Running out of hope

I have been putting in so many job applications and I haven't had not one call for an Interview. I am 57 and I am a college student. My bills are stacking up and life is getting unmanageable. I just hope someone calls me soon.

I'm almost at a year with nothing permanent. I had a month long contract (was supposed to be 3 but the work dried up).
I get…
