it seems stupid to me, i know that it shows that your interested but thats not my job, isn't that what a hiring manager is for, aren't they suposed to call you. i mean if i wasn't intrested in the job i wouldn't have took the 30 minutes to fill out the aplication in the first place. duh.

Think about it this way. As a manager or owner (I'm both for different companies ) you receive 30 applications for a job. You look through them and most of them are pretty much alike. So you pick 10 or so and interview them, usually based on what you need (experience always counts) and you get a feel for them. Then usually you get down to 2 or 3 so then it comes down to who wants it more. If only one calls as a follow up who do you think they are going to pick? Enthusiasm for the position counts, especially for openings in the jobs teens get.1
