Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I am sure many of you who are like me and have the misfortune to be on the job market right now have gotten a message like this from a potential employer:
We are in receipt of your application. The posting is now closed.
Given the very high number of applicants, we will not be able to contact applicants personally beyond this email. We will be beginning the interview process as soon as possible. You will be contacted by [staff] if you are progressing to the interview process. Please do not contact [staff] further to find out where we are in our search process.
My question is, is there a good way to actually follow up with them, given a message like this? I generally follow up fairly aggressively with employers, if only because I like to know when I'm out of the running, but I'm unsure of what to do in this situation. Should I just wait by the phone? Just ignore it and call them back as normal? Or is there some middle ground?
