Last week I applied for a job & sent my CV & other details to the recruiter. Then they sent me back another form to fill which contained some competency type questions. I filled out the form and sent it to them the same day and received a email back thanking me for sending it through and that they'll send it to their head office.

Throughout this process I have been in contact with only one person.

My question is how should I word my email to that person to ask about the progress of my application? I don't want to sound too annoying, please note that I have NOT sent an email to them asking about progress before.

Im a bit on edge waiting for the call/email.

I would just keep it very short as a reply to their last email.

"Hello X, hope you are well, I'm just following up on my application. Has there been any progress? Regards Y"
