I applied for a job. Now what?

Wait.  In many ways, the ball is now in the employer’s court.  However, if you don’t hear anything, you may contact the employer to make sure s/he has received your application and express your sincere interest in the position.  Avoid multiple calls to the employer, and instead, focus on positivity and keep plugging away at your plan for getting a job.

Expect to apply to many different jobs before getting an interview somewhere, and to have multiple interviews before you get a job offer.  Continue to submit applications and do not be discouraged.  Each “no” is one step closer to “yes”.
