Hi,

I applied for jobs within the past month...have not heard anything. What is the normal time frame between applying and receiving any indication on your application (on average)???

If its Accenture, it could be a long time

If you're applying to a grad scheme, it could range from a few days to have your application acknowledged, to a few months to have an interview scheduled, depending on whether you are being considered for a 2007 or 2008 intake.

If you're applying to an experienced hire job with a publicised closing date, you might hear within a month of that closing date if you are sucessful. If unsuccessful, you might not hear anything.

If applying to a job without a publicised date, it could be anything from a matter of days to a few months, depending on how urgently the company needs to fill the post and whether they want to collect lots of applications before sifting them down.

Similarly, if you are applying to a general employment ad, it could be several months before you hear as there isn't necessarily any direct link between the availability of suitable vacancies for you and the advert. These are the types of ads that state simply "consultants" or "consultants - all levels" as the job title and are kept open on the firm's website perpetually.

If you are applying through an agency, if you are successful you will usually hear within a couple of weeks, otherwise you will probably not hear at all.

If in any doubt, you can follow up your application after about 3 weeks with a phone call to ask about progress/approximate dates.

It took 2 months from the moment I've applied until they called me for an interview.
