How long to wait for feedback from the interview?
It can take days or even weeks before an application is answered. This is why only 6% of HR decision-makers understand when applicants register within the first three days. A quarter of the respondents consider a waiting period of at least 11 days to be appropriate.
Why am I not getting an answer to my application?
If the application ends up in the spam folder and is not fished out in time, you will not receive any feedback. Or if you wrote to the wrong recipient. So there doesn’t have to be any malicious intent behind the lack of feedback.
How do I inquire about an application?
Ask politely, friendly and without reproach about the status of the application. Do not put pressure on the recruiter. Allow at least a week or two for processing for small businesses, too. Do not ask about the intermediate status shortly before or after the application deadline.
How do you behave after an interview?
If the deadline has passed, you should inquire personally – preferably by telephone and with your direct contact person. And even if no feedback has been agreed, you can politely inquire about the status of the selection process and your application one week after the interview.
How do you ask if the position is still available?
Greet politely and friendly, introduce yourself by name (!) And ask if the position is still available. If it says yes, you can also use the interview to ask in which form you would like your application documents and what you would like to see (i.e. certificates, etc.).
Is the position still vacant?
The adjective vacant means “vacant” or “empty”. The scope is relatively narrow and almost exclusively includes posts, offices, positions (in companies) etc. Vacant positions are those that are supposed to be filled by suitable people, but are not currently.
When are job advertisements removed?
The positions are often removed when enough applicants have registered so that more people cannot apply for the position. But if you keep pissing people off, they are more likely to not choose you.
Should you call application?
As a rule of thumb you can remember: For small / medium-sized companies 2 weeks or 10 working days, for larger companies you should be patient for 3 weeks or 15 working days before you should call after the application. However, if you wait 5 or more weeks, this can be interpreted as disinterest.
Is the position still up to date?
In fact, it’s hard to tell how current a job advertisement is. It is easiest if deadlines are set by which an application is expected and considered. This information is found almost only in advertisements from the public service.
What do I have to consider when applying by telephone?
This includes questions about qualifications, current job or the earliest possible starting date. During the phone call, the HR manager also makes notes about his impressions of the call, such as recognizable preparation for the conversation or the applicant’s overall behavior on the phone.
What does a title mean in an application?
An exciting title for the résumé is easy to find: the job title for which you are applying in combination with one or two meaningful key qualifications that explain how well you fit the advertised position. The whole thing resembles a concise slogan.
