I'm interviewing with a large cellular company. I had my video interview on the 6th of June, and later that day the recruiter called me back and told me I made it to the second rounds. She said she’s going to set me up to interview with the V.P of this program. She told me I won't hear from her for about two weeks because she has to set up my interview on the V.P schedule. The two week mark was on the 20th (Thursday). As, of today I still have not heard back from the recruiter. I'm thinking about email her, but how should I ask for an update on the process if she already told me two weeks?


I really don’t want to annoy the recruiter, but what if she forgot about me.

"I'd just like to follow up on the position. I'm looking forward to setting up the next interview."

Something like that. The 2 weeks are past, it's not an annoyance to follow up.

In general, this is something I don't understand. If the recruiter contacted you for this opening, why would it be considered an annoyance if you follow up with him? Shouldn't the recruiter want to hear from you, which shows you are interested? Isn't the recruiter getting paid if the firm hires you? I feel that this is part of the job of a recruiter. They should know that the job applicant is most likely eager and wants to kept posted. Why would this be an annoyance to a recruiter? If I was a recruiter, I certainly wouldn't mind having the applicant check in with me.

Um, why would it take the recruiter two weeks just to schedule something?
