    why present perfect?

    could you explain why present perfect was used in the first part of the following sentence?

    "About a week after you have sent in your resume, call the hiring manager"

    just a student.

    do you mean why not to say "after you send in your resume"?

    that's a very good question and I also would like to know the answer.

    just a student.
