What do you say when you hand in a resume?
Identify yourself, the job you’re interested in, that you’ve applied through the proper channels, and that you’re just dropping off an extra copy of your resume and cover letter. Thank the person for their time, and say you hope you’ll be considered for the job.
How long does it take for a job to hire you?
You hear back from a real person at the company. A hiring manager likes your resume and will be in touch soon to schedule a phone interview. In an ideal scenario, you may get this coveted call within a day or two of applying, but it’s more realistic that the call won’t come until two weeks have elapsed.
Should you apply for jobs on a Friday?
In most companies, recruiters work normal business hours Monday through Friday, said Duarte, who has been tracking job listings and hiring statistics for the past 23 years. “Then on Thursday and Friday, it’s a rush to get jobs posted so that during the next week they can start screening resumes.”
