When you resume is sent to the national recruiter whom I assume is the hiring manager after it passes through the first HR person... typically how long does it take to hear back?

And if they are going to reject you do they usually send a rejection letter/email? My resume has been sent to this person for 11 days or so and so far I have heard nothing either way, nothing good nothing bad

How long until I contact them again? maybe send them an update resume to get them to notice me and hopefully I'll hear something back?

Don't wait for an answer and don't put your job search on hold.

A nice polite e-mail wouldn't hurt; neither would a phone call.

Do it today or tomorrow and if you don't hear back by Friday......remove it from your brain.

For your sanity.....

I don't think you need to contact them if you don't get a response because either the person didn't think you were a good fit or the job is not real.

And from experience if someone receives your resume and wants to set up a interview it's usually within a two week time frame.

Yes it is driving me nuts, but it took 3 weeks for the first internal recruiter to contact me and then another 10 days for them to tell me they were sending my resume to the national recruiter? so it could be too soon to contact them. but still i should either way right? or do they leave people just hanging here, I should hope HR at this point will send a rejection if they say so. My setting on the taleo have it set up to get a rejection letter and so far nothing.

I hate this waiting

It took 3 weeks for them to contact me initially and 10 days after that to tell me there we're sending my resume to the senior recruiter person.

What if they are collecting resumes and the job isn't open or they don't know what their staffing needs are. This job has been posted for forever and never seems to be closed

This situation hardly fits into your "the job isn't real" category. if you read the OP's post properly you'll see that this application is already at stage 2. However, OP, I agree with YAZ's response and suggestion. Good luck!

Agreed and good point, however in this stage 2 is the next step a phone interview or in person? I hope in person because this place is only 20 mins away. I would do a better job in person than on the phone

Oh I didn't see where you stated that you received contact from the initial submission of the resume. Well in that case I would follow up with email first in the late evening so they will get the email first thing in the morning and then a phone call if you don't hear anything after emailing.

There is no real answer to your question.

Some companies have a set recruitment period for jobs, where they will accept applications for two weeks, or a month, then look at all of them.

Other companies will call people as they see candidates that they like.

Some companies setup phone interviews first, others like in person.

Listen to the other posters. One polite followup by phone or email, then move on.

I sent a follow up email I hope hear something soon. If the first recruiter said that the national one will follow up if there is a match I hope that means the job is real and they are actually looking , I don't want to be waiting forever for it to open up before they start interviewing applicants
