EMPLOYMENT opportunities

Once you find a job posting of interest, tweak your resume and e-mail it to the recruiter. Then the waiting game begins. After you've sent a resume, it's tempting to sit back and hope the recruiter will call. But -- make no mistake -- It's YOU that should follow up. You just need to figure out when and how to do it.

The ideal amount of time to wait before following up on a resume you've sent is one week. The majority of recruiters say candidates should wait one week before following up. Some recruiters recommend you act sooner, less than one week after submitting your resume. Still other recruiters say that you should wait for them to call you.

You don't want to lose your dream job to someone who has acted more aggressively.
