I submitted my resume for a software development position and several days later I received a "screening call" from a recruiter. After a good conversation, I was instructed to send him some code samples and he would distribute them to the relevant teams. He noted that he was very confident he could get me at least one interview.
After a week, I politely inquired about the status of my application. He told me that he was still waiting to hear back from managers, and that he was meeting with them soon and would be sure to discuss my case and get back to me ASAP.
It has been 2 weeks since I last spoke to him (via email.) Would it be abnormal or rude to contact him again at this point? Is it better to exercise patience in this case or should one be more proactive?
I fear that it might be insulting to the recruiter to send an additional email (particularly if he hasn't forgotten about me)
