    Yes, as the hiring manager, I would think you're too pushy and be annoyed. : (0 votes)
    It doesn't matter, if she hasn't followed up yet, that means you probably aren't in the running. : (1 votes)

    @QueenOfSerendip:  I don’t think you hurt your chances at all. You sent a thank-you note, and followed up the next week. I think that is polite and shows interest, but not overwhelming “GET BACK TO ME NOW ASAP YESTERDAY!!!” 

    Listen, hiring takes time, and it never progresses on-schedule. Unless it’s an immediate need type thing, expect it to take a little longer than they said.

    Glad to hear you got the second interview! It’s so hard not to bug people for an update when you’re waiting to hear about a job. It’s really hard to remember that they have a full plate of work other than just dealing with your application–it’s like, what is taking so long!! Congrats on the interview.
