I don’t think it is annoying to call and check on your materials once.  Calling over and over will annoy them though!

Good luck!

I’m not sure what industry or market you’re in but if there’s been a change to your application status (i.e. license or designation) that may make you a better candidate I would contact HR with an email to along the lines of “Hi, I’m Monkeyface and I’ve applied for ________. As an update, I have recently achieved ______….am still interested in _____”.

As someone who works as an admin, one call isn’t bad… it’s the repetitive “how about now?” “what about now?” “Nothing yet?” “Ok, I’ll call back later.” 

NO. Don’t call back later. I have your phone number memorized and I will NOT pick up. 🙂

Adding that you received your license this week is a definite reason to contact them.  Send an updated resume along with your e-mail or whatever you decide to do to contact them.  Speaking from a profession that requires licensure, they may have already tossed your resume aside due to lack of licensure.  This will help them put it back to the top of the pile.  🙂  Congrats!

If you got a automatic confirmation that they recieved your resume (this is typical when you email it in), the employer typically doesn’t want those confirmation phone calls. I agree if you can let them know about your license coming in.

It may be more effective to wait a few days after the application deadline and check on the status of the application process. If you call now, they’ll just say “yah, we got it” and hang up.
