Application Follow-Up Email


Application Follow-Up Email

A general rule to follow for a follow-up email to an application is to send it between three to five days after you submit the application through You want to give them enough time to receive and possibly review your information.

The best bet is to keep it short, sweet and to the point. And, most importantly, make sure your email is absolutely error free – meaning no typos, spelling mistakes or grammatical errors.

Here’s one example:

Dear (name of recruiter),

Last week, I applied for the (position title) you advertised through . I have not yet heard back from (company name) regarding this position and would like to confirm receipt of my application.

I feel that my skills and experience fit not only this position, but the company as a whole. I am excited about this opportunity and think I can bring a lot to your team. Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything else you need from me.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Thank you,

Best Regards,

(Name & Surname)


A follow-up email leaves the ball in their court so that you ask them to take the next step and contact you. Following up on your applications is an important part of the job search process and shouldn’t be overlooked!
