I've found some conflicting opinions on whether or not applicants should follow up with prospective employers after they've submitted their resume and job application. Some emphatically say "YES!" and state that this action will make your resume stand out and get noticed. Others disagree and liken this behavior to harrassment. With such stark variances in opinions, I'm scavenging the internet for a clear answer.
The best I've come up with is that .. it just simply depends on the situation.
