Today, my parents switched phone companies, which changed the phone number. Two days ago, I dropped off over 15 job applications with my 'old' number on all of them. There is a waiting period before I can reapply anywhere. FML

If it's a cell phone, you have 30 or 60 days to port your number out, which typically takes less than a week. I'm guessing that's not the case - but honestly, most places won't hire applicants that don't call back about the application status.
tldr - stop bitching and think.

my thoughts exactly. not only is it a simple solution to the problem, it shows that you're serious about getting the job (as opposed to just dropping off an application and forgetting about it).

OP, don't bother... with your reasoning you just proved you don't deserve A JOB... ANY JOB. All you had to do was call them and give them your new number, that simple. And please, get yourself a cell phone, and stop blaming your folks for your mistakes. q

Good luck getting a job that way.

Also, you NEVER call people to inire about the application process. If you are going to check on it, always go in person so that they don't get the impression that you're a lazy ass who won't take a little while out of your schedule to go to the business and ask in person.

Maybe if they call and don't get an answer, they will email you. But if you knew you were going to get a new phone soon you should've waited until you knew what your new number was going to be.
