If you were polite enough to communicate even with a no thanks, the world may open up with generosity towards you in return.
If you haven’t heard back about your job application after two weeks, it’s perfectly acceptable to call the hiring manager unless the listing states otherwise. You can say: “Hi, I’m following up on an application that I sent. I’m very interested in the role and your company, and I just wanted to ensure that you received it.” This way you’ll know if the person is still sorting through resumes or if the position has already been filled. Then, listen to what the person says. If they say, “We’re still in the preliminary stages of vetting candidates and going through applications,” you can say something like, “Do you know when you’ll be in touch with candidates you’re interested in?” If you don’t receive a phone call or an email during the time period specified, you are probably not a contender for the position.
