If providing a hard copy of your cover letter, use high-quality matching bond paper for
your resume, cover letter, and envelopes in white or ivory.
Applicants who have not heard from an employer after two to three weeks (or
significantly after the position closing deadline) may choose to follow-up by email or
Follow-up should be directed to the original contact person.
Take a "low key" approach - state the date the original application materials were sent;
ask if it was received (the Post Office and the internet are not infallible); restate your
interest in that specific position; and ask where they are in their selection process. It is
important that the follow-up does not come across to the prospective employer as, "Why
haven't I heard from you?”.
