JOB SEEKERS! This advice from Kirk Baumann at Campus to Career raises important points about the value of face-to-face and phone conversations. Here’s more:

“…Don’t hide behind email.  Pick up the phone and call to inquire about your application*.  Be friendly; persistent, but kind.  Recruiters get hundreds, thousands of emails a day.  Stand out.  Call them (only if the job posting doesn’t say “no calls, please”).  If they don’t pick up, be sure leave a short, concise message.  They have caller-ID.  They know you called, so make the most of it!…”

[*Note and caveat: if the position application instructions say “No phone calls, please,” it would be wise to follow directions during the initial stages of a search.]
