Types of Application
A formal application, broken down to its main purpose, is the act of persuasion of a potential engagement (be it educational, business, or work) which provides a general summary of your credentials including experience, skills, and achievements in relation to what you are applying for.
Take for instance, an employment application, its purpose is to let a potential employer have an understanding of the details of the person behind an application. An application is considered to be of two types:
- Solicited application – An application written in response to an advertisement is called to be a solicited application. It refers to the job advertisement posted and mentions the specific job being advertised. Being publicly known, numerous individuals would be expected to vie for the job posted. Applications that are solicited are often well made and covers specific details of the individual applying for the job.
- Unsolicited application – Unsolicited applications are applications sent as a result of a spontaneous application.

These applications are often sourced from contacts inside the company or through individual research.

Following up on an Application
So you’ve finally handed over that application you have spent long hours and sleepless nights making and perfecting. And now you are just so anxious to hear about the response. Any reply would do and its driving you nuts just thinking about it. Fear not. This happens to even the best of us. Here are a few tips to consider in following up for an application:
- If it was a solicited application, check on the advertisement for any information that may mention expectations for a reply from the company. It is advisable to wait for any date given in response to the application.
- An alternate solution to avoid the waiting madness would be to include a line that mentions you calling the office a week after to follow up with the application. It would be unwise to call if the advertisement provisions for the applicants not to call.
- An email response in follow up to an application would indicate your willingness and eagerness for the position.
- Always perform your reply or follow up in proper business conduct. Be professional both in email and over the phone. If possible, ask for an interview to reaffirm your interest with the job.
