I am an Australian citizen trying to move to France. I found a job advertised on the weekend that has visa sponsorship for overseas applicants (very rare, the only one I've seen so far). The job is at a large international company with its headquarters in France. I sent the application four days ago but due to the weekend they would only have had a day to look at it so far, assuming it reached them. It is currently Tuesday afternoon in Australia but still early morning in France.
I didn't apply directly to the company but on a recruitment site so I don't know how efficient that process is. Would it look bad if I contacted the company directly to ask about my application or would that be a positive because I am eager? I have no experience with French companies yet.
