I'm working a fairly entry level job in Information Technology for a company I've been with for nearly a year now. I've been hired part time after interning initially for 3 months. After receiving my bachelor's I will begin working full time for the company
I'm often working on projects from various levels of priority, mainly fairly low because of my experience. Being inexperienced however, I often require additional help or instructions from members of the company. My experience with replies range from taking weeks, to often not receiving a reply at all from different sources of help. This can often lead to my projects stalling completely.
How often or how persistent should I be when it comes to following up with these requests? Is this normal to expect as an entry level employee?
It's difficult to tell sometimes if they're deliberately seeing if I'll show traits of persistence or if they're simply too busy to deal with my requests.
I don't want to show that I lack initiative and drive; however, I don't wish to be a thorn in the side of my employees.
Thank you for your input.
