Your Day 10 Challenge: Follow Up On Your Applications

Sick of not hearing back from employers about your application?

Here’s what you should do: Try calling employers a few days after you’ve applied. You can search the company name and location on Google for the phone number.

When you call, ask if you can speak to someone in charge of hiring for the job position you applied for. It’s as easy as that!

Note: Don’t call if an employer asks you not to (it’ll be on your job application).

I have performed follow ups for each application. Some have not bothered to return my call. Or I get a later response stating we have reviewed your resume and decided to pursue other experienced candidates
How am I to get the experience if no one decides to give me a chance?

Stan Burton

Is the phrase I have a few more applicates to talk to the kiss of death? They tell you how qualified you are and then that statement.

Call back on some employers who didn't give me a chance to talk or know I have no transportation so I can keep a job.

Why are we required to put our age on applications if it is so non-discriminatory?

I would never called to any employer, that's not my way , right now I just work to pay the bills ,I got helped from daughter and sons I've been working for more than 30 years, that's why I don't worry to much. I just do what I can .

Alexander Boadi
