So I'm really fucking praying for this job. I need some tips on a follow up email I should send tomorrow.

Context: its an entry level market research analyst job in a moderately sized city. I live about 30 minutes out and I'm already used to the commute. I only have a year work experience immediately after graduation, in min.wage jobs, but my time in uni makes up for the research intensive aspect

I sent in my resume and message of intent on monday. Tomorrow is a full week so I want to send a follow up email. It was by email-only so I'm not sure I should call. The email goes directly to who I assume is the hiring manager. She responded hours after I sent the initial email so I know there is a real-live person on the other end.

Any tips on what I should say? How long it should be? I really really really want this fucking job so any advice on making myself seem more attractive would be phenomenal

bump?

Calm down. A week actually isn't that long in the HR world. Send a follow up email next week Monday.

Hiring Manager's Name,

This is My Name. I am writing you to inquire on the status of my application for Job, sent 11/8. I am quite interested in this position, and I thank you for your consideration.

Thank you for your time,

Your Name

I know, I'm just sweating bullets. This could make me.
i'll keep all that in mind

Market research analyst sounds like you're going to be chained to phones, so don't sweat it cause it's a shitty job with a high turnover rate. They probably want you more than you think you want them.

That's not really how the job works but okay lol. Median starting rate is 45k a year and I'm fine going from min wage to that for a while even if that's what it comes to

Maybe, I haven't read the advertisement for the job, so I don't know.

It's a startup web development company and basically I'd be writing reports on trending information to deliver to people trying to build their own website. So SEO, social media, etc

> follow up email

nigga, send a damn physical letter. sound weird? trust me, it works. write a physical letter out thanking them for their time, and either mail it to the office or drop it off so you know it gets there in time.

This will make you stand out IMMENSELY. use good quality paper, not just printer paper. Don't write like an idiot, type it out first to check for typos, then hand write it in after.

Have shitty writing? Take the extra 30 minutes to write like a respectable person. If you make a mistake, get a new sheet, don't cross it out. Use pen.

People get a million emails daily, it WILL be lost. Write a letter, get some props. Hell, give the receptionist cookies with it if you're really worried.

I'm actually really thinking about doing this.
should I follow >>16466723
script?
>>
>>16466839

I want more details. What was the job posting's timeframe? Did it have a cut of date? If they're not interviewing for 3 more weeks, you might be rushing things sending it tomorrow. A physical letter would be best, but you don't want to come off nagging them about it.

and have you researched this company? know their history and ins and outs? the script above is simple and to the point, but if you info dropped something in regards to the company you may get more interest since it'll show you know something outside of what your resume says.

so do you "know" this company, done your research? and what is the date range for applications?
>>
>>16466885
The listing was posted a month ago, but it's still up and says "open until filled" and "Starting immediately".
I've researched as much as I can because it's a small, independent start up - the owners were out of silicon valley. It's a great looking thing, really good benefits and seems like it is willing to treat it's employees well
there's not much else to it though, it seems fairly young. They seem to have a few connections to local gaming development companies (casinos, I live in nevada)

>>16466914
I like the fact you did these things. shows you give a shit since so many just file for the job.

if it was posted a MONTH ago, i'd say even though you sent in the resume so recently, go forth and try to get in contact soon. Drop off the letter, and maybe make it a mini-cover letter? like, say the above script, but add something showing you do know this stuff about them without sounding creepy? i'm thinking of an example, but can't come up with one on the spot.

i'd even leave it open ended, like you're interested in this position but maybe mention something about interest in future positions if already filled because you CARE ABOUT THIS COMPANY.

was that at all helpful?
>>
>>16466975

that was great! I feel a lot better about it, a little less nervous even though I'm still definitely anxious and excited. I really like the ideas you've given me though, you're probably right in that it's been a short time and I can probably really make myself stand out with the letter

thank you!!!
>>
>>16466981
Glad to help. didn't think i was contributing much. i wish you luck with everything, and hope you can organize your letter well. use those university writing skills. and remember to buy thick, quality paper, maybe off-grey or slight tan. another thing that stands out.

Good luck and good night anon, for I am off.
