I went to an interview 5 weeks ago and was interviewed by a manager in the company (large, international company, +5000). I was told to be patient by the interviewer as they had many applicants. After two weeks I reached out to merely inform of my travel plans (as per this question) and that I am available when abroad on phone/email. I received a reply, saying that they expect to give me a reply the following week.
Two weeks have passed without any reply. Should I reach out to the manager or will it make me seem desperate/unprofessional? On the other hand, I don't want to miss a potential job because I am labelled "not-proactive".
