I would absolutely follow up!

I’d do this to see where you stand as well as talk to an actual person about when they’d be conducting any interviews etc. 

However- that’s just my personal opinion 🙂

@LadyBlackheart:  In my line of work, you don’t follow up. It doesn’t happen. If they want you, they will call you. I have had 5 professional jobs and no follow up calls. If you aren’t hearing back right away, I would work on your cover letter. Having a tailored cover letter really helped me out

My cousin works as a career advisor, and the rule is to always write a thank you card to the interviewer. Not as some sucking up thing, but as a polite, “Let’s connect and even if you don’t get me a job, let’s end this on good terms in case I interview here again!” Plus it’s the classy thing to do.

Although I must admit, when I’ve had an interview with a company I didn’t like before, I never wrote a thank you card.. Oopsie!

I can’t imagine it could possibly hurt your chances so why not try it?  It might be something that sets you apart from other applicants.

I think it depends on the job…a lot of places will specifically say in the posting not to call, so doing so might hurt your chances.
