Can I bypass recruiter and contact Hiring Manager directly for getting update on status of my interviews?

    If you haven't already done one follow up, phrase it in the way of thanking them for the opportunity, that you enjoyed it (blah blah), and then ask about anything else you should do as well as a status on the req

      Hmm, my take on directly calling the HM is 50/50 in my mind. I would do that sort of thing if I knew them. You were definitely correct in emailing tho. How long since the interview?

      If it’s been 2 months. Get the hint and move on. No point in beating a dead horse.

      If I may ask, what company did you apply for? Cause the process timelines vary wildly for different companies. Also, ignore the background check part. That usually takes 2 weeks max for most people. Usually means that they are not sure about hiring you. I would suggest apply everywhere else and go on the assumption you didn’t get it.

      If you do get this position, it will be a pleasant surprise, but honestly don’t hedge your bets.
