Employer Response Time

What is the typical response time for a submitted application for an opening in Project Management (banking, big pharma, big food, telecom).

I know if they dislike you or your application they will not get in touch at all but if they do what is the typical response time?

Thank you very much

A month to never, however big Swiss companies will usually write you a nice letter even if you were totally unsuitable as the know people in CH need replies to show to the RAV.

Re: Employer Response Time

A few days or a week if you passed the screening. If you don't hear anything for more than 2 weeks it means you are rejected.
