I was reading this link, but my situation is a little different because I never had an interview.
I submitted my application to a job posting twelve days ago, and after not hearing back from them, I decided to followup with an e-mail stating that I'm interested in the job, and looking forward to hearing from them. I re-submitted my resume/cover letter in the followup e-mail. I still have not heard anything from them.
I assumed that I wasn't a good fit for the job, and so they passed on my application. The issue is, the job posting states that if you don't have any experience, they will train you. I have experience, some of which exceeds that of the requirements. My assumption is, given the simplicity of the job (data entry), a lot of people have applied, and they simply haven't reviewed my application yet. The job posting is still open, but I'm unsure of what to do, do I wait? Is it okay to make contact and ask about my application?
I highlighted the word assumption because, no one has made contact, so I can only guess as to what is going on, which I know is dangerous, and making the wrong move could get my application tossed (again, I assume).
