I am a tentative college grad (BA) for this December (yay!). I have worked on-campus in the networking department, and have had 2 summer internships, and the most recent one has led to continued employment during this fall.
I was recommended to an out-of-state company by a co-worker this summer. I sent over my cover letter, resume, ect. to the HR manager as directed. We sent a few emails back in July and last I had heard, she told me that my resume and application was sent to the hiring manager but would be pending til graduation.
Should I reach out to her and let her know I am still very interested in the position and that my skillset has continued to grow?
e.g. I am working on a publication for my college about a project I did with a raspberry pi, and I continue to learn more from my internship (about SQL and Linux... technology relevant to the position being applied to).
Or should I wait until graduation is closer before contacting her again?
I don't want to pester anyone... but at the same time I want them to know I am excited about the position and that I am actively working to improve my skill set.
So is there a way for me to maintain contact that could be advantageous in the future? If so how? When is the right time to contact them to get my resume into active consideration for open positions?
