FAQ #5. How long should I wait before following up?

If you don’t hear back from an interviewer right away, don’t follow up again until after the interviewer’s deadline has passed. If the date passes and you still haven’t heard anything, send a brief follow up to remind the interviewer about your qualifications and interest in the open job. After that first follow up, you can follow up again every 7-10 days, up to two more times, for a total of three follow ups. If you still haven’t heard back, you should move on.
