Default Job?

I just applied for my first job, and I was wondering how long I should expect to wait to hear back from them?

Also, if I don't get the job, will they let me know or just not call me?

Nine times out of ten, if you don't meet their requirements and you don't get the job, they just won't call. What purpose does it serve them right? They're concerned about their time, not yours unfortunately.

A good tip would be to give them a call in a few days asking whether they had a chance to look over your resume and CV or application. It shows that you're interested in working there.

Default Re: Job?

It can vary. It also depends on if they want to interview you or straight up give you the job.
I applied for a job and 2 months later they called me for an interview. I got the job. My new workmate said she got a call the day after she applied.
It's all varied.
I know some places give calls to gently inform people they didn't get the job, my friend got one the other day.
Shonna's advice to call them in a few days is great.

I've applied for like 300 jobs, most don't even bother replying back, some just send you a e-mail saying on this occassion you have been unsuccesful, or they might ask you in for a interview if your lucky unlike me (n)

Kaylie, follow up with a note thanking them for meeting with you, and express your continued interest in the job, maybe give a reason or two why you think it's a good fit.

In terms of what to expect from them, it depends on the job and frankly how classy they are as an organization. People with good manners and good business sense recognize that someone who has taken the time to apply for a job and meet for an interview is worth the courtesy of a personal response, maybe with an explanation, even if it's disappointing.

Ok, thanks Sam!

When I dropped off my resume, they seemed really nice, so hopefully they'll give me notice even if I didn't get an interview.
