Netiquette IQ Blog Of The Day - Polite Perseverance


Polite (or Impolite) Perseverance

“Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.
—Bill Bradley

One of the most delicate parts of Netiquette for job seekers is determining when and how often to follow up to an initial email or interview. This is easy when a process has been defined. It is the best Netiquette to follow the procedures outlined in an application, the response you get at the end of an interview, or when an offer of employment is extended. To assist in this process, review the following matrix. Good Netiquette follows the principle that it is better to be a little bit early in following up than to be a little bit late.
