Maybe there has already been a thread about this, but I can't find one. My husband applied for a job, and it is now a week and a half past the application deadline, and he hasn't heard from them yet. We know the position is already vacant and they really need to fill it soon. He really is perfect for the job, fits all the requirements to a T, and he'd really like to have it. The position announcement said "No Phone Calls", but he's debating sending a follow-up email, just to make sure they don't need any more information from him, and to let them know he'd still like to have the job. I know there has got to be a good way to word his email, without sounding pushy or needy, but neither of us can come up with the perfect wording.
Does anybody have any suggestions, maybe some ideas for what has worked for you. Or maybe you don't think a follow-up at this point is a good idea. I'd especially like to know how department heads feel about this. The job is with a city engineering department. I've only done follow-up letters after interviews, thanking them for the opportunity... pleasure to meet you kind of stuff.
