: Can you tell me the correct phrase to use to ask someone to respond back to you. I am job hunting and I want to contact the hiring manager and ask him/her to please respond back to me and let me know if I am still being considered. (Most times they just ignore you.) I don't want to sound like I am begging, but I also don't want to sound too forceful. I think the phrase is "please give me the courtesy of a response." I'm stuck on the verb - is "give" correct? or is it "provide"?

: Thanks in advance for any help.

I use, 'may I have the courtesy of a response'.
