What's the protocol for this situation? 2 days ago (Wed) I printed an application for employment, filled it out and faxed it over,

If I filled out and faxed a job application on Wednesday. It's now Friday and I have yet to hear from them. Should I give it more time, or is it acceptable to call them today?

Just to confirm if they have received your application, there is no shame in asking them via email or a short telephone call. Ask them how long it will take for them to process your application. Should be helpful.

Call them and say you just want to confirm that they got the fax.

It depends on the job that you're applying for & the employer. If it's a menial position that doesn't have an open & close application period I'd call. If it is a bit up the ladder, I'd hold off for a bit, maybe 5 working days until I'd think about giving them a call. They'll have to do a full background on you & that can take some time
