    Re: will I find out / I will find out

    The second is correct.

    When will I find out if I have got the job?
    Can you tell me when I will find out if I have got the job?
    Please tell me when I will find out if I have got the job.

    Use the subject/verb inversion in a direct question. Don't invert in an indirect question or a statement.

    Also note that "if I am accepted for the job" isn't natural. Try "if I have got the job" or "if I have been successful with my job application".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
