Should I call the organization where I applied for a job 9 days ago?
They sent me a post card stating my application was received a few days after I mailed the application. I saw this Sunday that they ran the add anouncing the opening again. So this means they are still collecting resumes. Should I call or would it look bad? I'm applying for a position as a human resources assistant. Ok, so I'm calling. What should I say when I call?

Definitely give them a follow up call. They are probably still collecting resumes to get a good pool of applicants. Calling will help make your name stand out and might give you an idea of when they will start interviewing.

Just make a call and make an equiry whether the position is vacant, if yes, tell them to make a schedule for personal round.
