This can take a bit of extra time, so we ask you allow our recruiters 1-3 weeks to follow up regarding the status of your application. 
My application is "under review." What does that mean?
This means our hiring team has received your application and are reviewing your materials to evaluate how your skills and experience fit the listed requirements in the job description. This stage can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks. One a decision has been made regarding your application status, you will receive a notification.
