Online Job Application Follow-Up

Copyright Marco Volpi
It can be hard to follow up on online job applications, but if you have contacts at the company, they may be able to help get your job application noticed by the hiring manager.

Don't just wait for a response, check LinkedIn for contacts you may have at the company, ask for a referral or an introduction, if a contact person is listed in the job posting follow up.

SimplyHired's "Who Do I Know" lets you see who you're connected with at the company when you search for jobs.

If you're a college grad, check with your career office to see if they can provide you with alumni contacts at the company.

Here's more on how to find contacts at companies.
