Q: How long does it usually take to get a reply if a company is interested in your application?

I have sent several applications (but not more than 10) on echinacities and in my past experience, I received replies to more than 50% of my applications. How much time should I wait to pass until I can assume that a certain company is not interested in my application?

Also, is it advisable to attach your custom CV to every application or is it sufficient to use the resume that you create on echinacities?

 

Thank you

I used to c&p my CV out of my puter. That's the only creation I had ...

 

You better not assume anything until you have an invitation for an interview (at English teaching vacancies).

 

I had quite simple 'plan' when I was looking for new position here:

 

"Never stop sending your CV until you land a new job with Co's stamped contract." 

 

Good luck!

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
