Well, as I had said and still repeat, you will not get hired by any of these S-O-B's unless your related or very close friends of their family! Even if you are more skilled than the next guy, you still don't have a chance!!!

Unless you know of a deadline cut-off to the contrary, I would follow-up within a week. If it is a more professional type position in which you interviewed already then I would write a nice thank you for their time/interest in the position type letter within 2 days of the interview. Make sure you have nice paper & print it, rather than hand write it. That will show attention to detail & make you look more professional. If its a non-professional position, a letter might still be ok to avoid catching the hiring person off guard. If you follow-up with a call then I would simply ask when they might have a decision, briefly express interest, thank them for their time & leave it at that. They will see you are eager without being a pest. GOOD LUCK!!!:)

I'm glad to see someone with initiative & wanting a job!:)
