In general, the rule to abide by is to follow up a week or two after you submit your resume. Hiring managers sometimes receive dozens of applications and finding a new hire is not always a priority at the company. By waiting a week, you give the hiring manager some breathing room.
Following up one time is prudent because it can make you stand apart from the other applicants. It shows you have ambition and are enthusiastic about this particular position. In the event you follow up and still do not hear anything from the employer, then you should not invest any more time and energy into the endeavor. At that point, you simply become annoying in the manager’s eyes if you continue to email.
