Following up after a job interview without being annoying is tough. We put together a few suggestions, but we missed one important sentence. Sean Weinberg, co-founder of resume-grading web app RezScore, suggests that there's one line you don't want to leave out: "Please let me know either way."

He explains why:
THE most effective line to use in your follow up is "Please let me know either way".
I am going to repeat that: THE most effective line to use in your follow up is "Please let me know either way"
Sure, it's more polite for the company to let you know either way, but with the amount of applicants and the numbered hours in a day, it's not as likely that you're going to get that courtesy call or e-mail unless you specifically ask for it.
Follow up with them to help ensure that they follow up with you.
Sean offers a bunch of other great tips on writing a follow-up letter, so hit up the full post over at Simply Hired for more information.
