Ryan does your school have a career guidance department? Most colleges and trade schools do. Anyway maybe go to them for some general advice on professionalism and job search etiquette. They can be a great resource for young people just learning about the job market.

I'm not sure if they offer career guidance as much as internship placement (which, unfortunately for our location it's hard to snag up game design internships) and a portfolio center. However, that being said, in light of all this I've scheduled to go to portfolio center tomorrow to have them help me out with a website and I'll pick their brains about this matter regardless.

Good idea!

Unfortunately some game development companies are notoriously slow when it comes to job applications. When I was looking for a work placement several companies responded to my CV/application many months later after I had already started another job. Sometimes companies will keep your application on record just in case there is a similar opening later.

The only exception to the unwritten rules of ettiquete that I'm aware of is in the case of an online application (or email). Unless you already have a reply letting you know that they have received your application, it's fine to make a phone call to check. Beyond that, all you can do is wait.
