As if a job search wasn't already frustrating enough, we often get absolutely no response to many job applications.

Is it OK if I follow up and when is it appropriate to do so?
Whether you've received no response or been told that you'll hear back, there are some creative, non-intrusive ways to tackle the uncertainty.
