If you really need to find out what's happening with a specific job and your application after about a week, you can send a concise email to the hiring manager or recruiter (if you have a name), informing him or her that you've applied, and that you are curious to know of any developments or progress.
One thing to keep in mind is that if an employer specifically states that you should not follow up to check on your application status, then ignoring that request could hurt your job chances. Many companies will simply auto-reply with a "received" to your application and won't contact you again unless they want an interview, or to tell you that the job has been filled.
While it can be frustrating waiting for a reply from an employer after submit your application, don't let that slow you down or stop your job search. Remain proactive and keep looking, using different job search terms or making sure you're up-to-date on the latest listings.
