I applied for an associate position with Carlton Fields but haven't received a response in over a month. I'm assuming that means I won't be considered. But since I wasn't affirmatively dinged, I'm tempted to send an email to a certain hiring partner to indicate my interest. As they have probably received hundreds of applications, contacting this partner might bring positive attention to my application - or negative. Basically I'm concerned that reaching out directly to this guy will seem desperate. But it might also show moxie. At this point, however, I may not have anything to lose. Send or refrain?

What do you have to lose? A month is a while after, but who knows what they've been doing in that time.

You have nothing to lose. As long as you are respectful I don't see an issue.
