Unfortunately ‘people‘ in the HR or Recruitment space can ‘forget‘ to respond to your email.
That’s right! ‘forget’.
In-between an avalanche of emails, interview scheduling, actual interviews, internal meetings and the rest of them.
Therefore, please send out a reminder or call your contact person (1 reminder message/call should do) to follow up with your message/application/interview after considerable time has elapsed.
A considerable time for me would be 2-3 days where a specific time frame was given and has elapsed and in instances where no time was given, 1 week after should be fine.
Sending a reminder in most cases, won’t give you the ‘desperate candidate’ label instead as a candidate you ‘might’ be perceived as being highly motivated and mindful of the process.
I wish you God’s speed.
