What’s The Best Time to Follow Up on a Résumé?
A job search involves navigating a thousand tiny decisions. Making the wrong choice—even in something small—could cost you. Executive assistants are well versed in the job-search process, including what it takes to make it on to a job offer. Jim Pawlak offers excellent advice from an executive assistant’s perspective. One of the best tips:
“Place your follow-up call 7–10 business days after you have sent your résumé. The worst days to call are Monday and Friday. The best times to call are mid-morning or an hour after lunch. Never call first thing in the morning or after 3 p.m.”
