It's a good idea to wait at least a week. If you mailed your resume, you need to allow for mailing time, and also time for the employer to review your information.

Generally, somewhere between one to two weeks would be a good idea...just don't let it go past that two week mark.

I personally don't wait that long. I don't want them to think I forgot about them. Especially in the legal field, you call promptly to make sure an office has received a fax. So if I fax it, I call shortly afterward. If I email it, I send another email the next day. If I send it via snail mail, I call in 2-3 business days. If I'm really interested in the position, I call weekly or email or make some kind of contact every week, a lot of times I just ask for v/m so I'm not putting them on the spot or interrupting something important. I also believe it depends on your profession...
