My job application status said applications under review next step interviews. Now, a few days later the status column is blank. Any idea what this means? Should I call the company?

Answered by Allegra, Hiring Expert at Cigna, on April 20, 2017

Yes, if you are concerned or just want an update on your progress, you should reach out to the recruiter via email or phone. Most recruiters are happy to chat and let you know where you are in the process, and what next steps may be.

Good luck!

This could mean nothing, or it could mean something is updating or changing regarding your status. It's never a bad idea to reach out to the company/recruiter to check on your application or interview status as long as you are not overdoing it. Keeping in contact and building relationships is key. So if you have not talked to them in a week or two and your status changes or disappears, it wouldn't hurt to reach out and see where your application or interview status is at.

Hello!

I hope you've heard back by now but if not, it is absolutely okay to email or call the recruiter to follow-up. Typically, I would recommend following-up the next day to make sure they received your resume and application. This will bring you to the forefront of their list and mind when under consideration.

Best of luck!
Bri, former recruiter
