Hi, everyone. I'm Brian Krueger with CollegeGrad.com and this is The Job Search Minute. So you have submitted your resume… Now what? Don’t sit back and wait for the phone to ring, be proactive in your job search by following up each resume submission with a personal contact. Step 1: contact the employer 2-3 business days after submission of your information to confirm receipt. Step 2: ask what the next step will be in the recruiting process. Get a specific time frame. Step 3: Follow up if the time frame has elapsed without the next step being taken. Be proactive in your job search to keep it moving forward. Pick up the phone and make the call, don’t be a pest, you don’t just sit back and wait for the phone to ring.
