    Those are some good tips for getting hired faster. Following directions really is important, that’s for sure. Last year I was granted an interview for a position that I applied for with over 300 applicants. I was told that I was chosen because I was one of the few applicants who followed their detailed instructions.

    I can definitely see an employer being leery to hire someone who can’t even follow the directions on a job posting. By the way, in case you’re wondering, I didn’t get that particular job.

    Following up is always one area that I am shy to do. Writing up an email that you send out a couple of weeks later sounds like a good way of following up.

      Thanks for the comments, Christopher. Yes, following directions is crucial. Sometimes people try to be clever and send too much or too litter, but it only hurts their chances. Few people follow up so doing so may gain you an advantage as it shows you’re very interested in the job. Just don’t do it too soon or too often. Thanks again.
