Within two weeks of sending your resume, you should hear back if an employer is interested.
Depending on the employer's priorities at the time of your application, it can take less time or perhaps longer.
Employers receive a lot of applications since hiring managers have other responsibilities besides hiring in a given week, so it takes a while to hear back from a job application.
The single most crucial action to take while waiting for a response on a job application is to keep applying to other positions.
Waiting for a single employer would simply make you more anxious and limit your possibilities in the job search, which could prolong your unemployment.
First, be careful to polish and adjust your CV for each position you apply for. Employers receive a lot of resumes, and they’re more likely to respond if they see that you’re a great fit for their specific needs.
Next, try using your network to get introduced to employers. That can open the door to building some rapport and trust, and asking for an introduction to a hiring manager!
You are now aware of the timeframes involved in receiving a response to a resume (on average). Additionally, while it will always take some time for employers to review your application and respond,
you can speed up the process by tailoring your resume and making connections with hiring managers through networking.
