Okay...I applied online, now what? Should I call?
 

 
Wassup yall. Im sure your here in this thread for the same reason as me. Jobless and looking for work!!

Okay so after I apply for a job, should I give the company a call? Should I call them up, ask for someone in the human resource department and speak with them about the position? I always wondered if this was a good thing to do? What should I exactly say when I call? Is this proper etiquette?

Ive had to have applied to about 30jobs in the past 2 weeks and have yet to hear anything back yet. I have a college degree in computer networking so I do have some things under my belt but I have heard from a lot of places I either dont have much experience or I have to much. Like wtf do they really want? lol

Well if anyone has any insight on this subject can you post your thoughts/tips?

Thanks in advance...

Hey man just keep applying and call the day after you apply just to ask if they received it then ask when should you expect to hear something on the status. Also get some certifications under your belt. In the meantime put up ads on craigslist for computer services like home/office networking

what i usually do is if i'm applying for a job online, I would finish the application and then just call that place up right after I finish the application and just ask for the store manager or the HR and follow up on my application. Don't wait a week to follow up on applications.....keep calling them! Waiting around won't do you much.

personally to be honest, calling isn't going to do s**t, I would recommend actually going up to the company, meeting people, finding out more about what kind of company they are or about there products, etc ... then after doing that mention u have put in your application... this method has actually gotten one of my friends a job... worse case scenario he got a cool a.ss golf partner, when he did it with one company... in places that are private like government jobs u will have to go apply and hope u luck up, and I would advise trying to network, thats why college is important, get to know your people u graduate with and stuff, because they can always provide u with information u might not know...

Rule of thumb is to call a day or two after you filled out the app. This is to make sure that they have received it. After that's concerned call them the following week. This lets them know that you're still interested in the job.

trust me this is the old method, and 1000s of people are using this same method, people who use same methods as others, find it harder to get a job, people who think actively, and different get jobs, quicker...
