Through a mutual friend, I was connected with a C-level guy at a firm I really want to intern for.

We had an informational interview and at the end, he asked me to send him my resume and said he'd forward it to the head of the department I want to apply to as well as reply back with another listing he also thought was relevant.

I sent him my resume, thanking him for his time and reiterating my interest/experience.

The thing is, he has not replied back with the other listing - so I am not sure if he did send my resume.

Is a follow-up appropriate or is that just pushing it?

Follow-up pros:
- I'd actually know if he did send my resume .
- If he forgot, then he might do it.

Follow-up cons:
- Hard to do without implying that I thought he did not do what he said he would -- which is presumptive
- Very busy guy and he already took the time to talk with me

hypthenated, shame nobody has responded. Maybe one of these topics will help:

Or maybe the following users have something to say: @Justin-Sampson @gojared @WanderingWanchai

If those topics were completely useless, don't blame me, blame my programmers...
