Recently I applied to a job. They asked me for sample work and I sent them. Now I get an email and in which they apologized for late reply and will be updating me in 1or 2 days.
How do I reply to that? Do I need to reply?

  1. I think a quick “Thanks for the update, I appreciate it.” or something along those lines is appropriate, basically just acknowledge and express appreciation for the update.

    Well done on the job progress, each step is good.

  2. Don’t feel bad about following up though. When I got this same thing from a job, two days later I rang, and because it was in a hospital, I kept missing him while he was out of the office. The phone never went to voicemail, so I would just hang up, but I’d call back like once an hour until I got him. Turns out he saw every time I called and took that as a sign of how badly I wanted the interview.

  3. “Thank you for getting back to me. I will check in with you in 2 days”

    Assuming they don’t get back to in 1-2 days (they have a bad track record so far), with this response you can then email them yourself in 2 days, with something like:

    “Hi, I just wanted to followup up to see if you have an update or need anything else from me?”

    To me, forming this as a question doesn’t come across as rude.
