Usually it seems to take around a week if not more.  Good luck!

It can take a while.. check when the job says it will be posted until. It will probably be a week or so after that.. the entry job I started at my work I had forgotten I had even applied for it had been so long.

In my experience I’ve never gotten anything as fast as a day. FH on the other hand applied, interviewed, and was offered his current job all in one day. It really depends I think but honestly I’d give it at least a week.

depends….I’ve been out of work since last June and have had calls anywhere from 1 day to weeks after I’ve submitted my resume.  Waiting sucks!

I’ve had as little as overnight and as long as a month :P. There’s really no way to tell, so keep hoping :).

It totally depends on the job. SOme companies have more hoops for resumes to jump through before they reach the people who “really” look at them. Sometimes companies take quite a while deciding who to bring in/phone interview if they are getting a lot of applicants. It all depends! Good luck, though!!

It really depends. If they are actively interviewing for the position and you qualify as a candidate you could hear back right away. Although that has never happened to me. Usually it takes weeks to months for me to hear back. I submitted my resume to the company I currently work for in mid August and didn’t hear back until almost October. They weren’t considering anyone else, they just took forever to start contacting candidates.

Sometimes you may never hear at all.

I know it’s hard to wait sometimes!  Most of the places I am apply to are government jobs which are notoriously slow!
