After years of trying to shift careers, I recieved a response to my application. Unfortunately, I didn't answer the phone when they called,they left a message. I called back, they didn't answer, I left a message. What is proper etiquette as far as waiting to call again if they don't call? Do I be on the offensive, or just lay back and hope they call? I don't want to be pushy, but don't want to be timid either, advice please!

I'd like to know the answer myself. I had a similar situation occur to me today.

Treat them the same as you would expect to be treated if it was reversed. If they called you and left a message, would you be annoyed if they called back 10 minutes later? I know I would. Would you be annoyed if they called back the next day? No.

Call tomorrow.

I would say follow up with a email in addition to the message you left. That seemed to work but not sure if you have the person's email address
