Do you follow up after submitting online job applications?
I recently applied to a couple places and both sent automated email responses essentially saying "Hey, we got the resume/application."
One said "If your qualifications match our needs, we will contact you..."
The other, "We'll get back in touch with you as soon as we can.."
My wife is telling me to follow up -- I don't want to because of what the responses said.
I've read plenty of advice online that seems split 50/50: some say it shows interest, others say it just annoys the hell out of recruiters.
So what do you folks think?
