This question already has an answer here:
I am in contact with a recruiter for a Company. This is the second time I've been in contact with this person. The first time was several months ago, and after an internal recommendation and several rounds of phone interviews, I was told to try again after graduation.
So I did. Several weeks ago, I sent this person my updated resume and they seemed enthusiastic about my trying again. The recruiter said my resume had been forwarded onto engineering for review.
The recruiter has been good about following up with me in the past, but I still haven't heard back. I do not want to push or seem needy (since I'm employed), so I've held off following up via email.
Should I send a follow up email? Nothing too pushy. Just to reaffirm my enthusiasm and see if any progress has been made. I know the recruiter isn't responsible for reviewing my resume, engineering is. At worst, all I will hear is "I haven't heard back".
