Applying for a job can be an exciting experience, and many applicants get their hopes up about landing interviews and eventually job offers. It’s important to note that early action is key when filling out applications. Chegg CareerMatch™ indicates competitive roles at major companies may garner hundreds of applications, and most employers look over them in the order they have been received. That underscores the importance of early submission. Due to an abundance of applications, applicants should not expect regular communication from a potential employer after the application is submitted. Applicants likely will not hear from anyone unless they are asked to be interviewed. An automated email confirming receipt of an application followed by radio silence is not uncommon. Feel free to follow up with the hiring manager if it’s been two weeks and you have not heard back.
