I had an interview with the hiring manager weeks ago but haven’t heard back even though I followed up twice with the recruiter. However, I did find some resource + techniques that I would like to share with the hiring manager that is directly related to the role I interviewed for, but this will be my first time emailing the hiring manager. Will it be weird?

I would say go ahead and send along the materials... but be aware that if you haven't heard back after a couple of weeks you likely didn't get the job. However, if they are still considering candidates, or the person to whom they offered the job declines, you might get lucky.

Yea I hope so! Thank you!

I wouldn't be worried about marketing yourself as a worthy applicant. No shame.

No shame it is. Thanks!

Just don't make it weird. You'll be fine and it will get you back into their thoughts, which is never a bad thing.

Thanks! I’ll def do it :)

Just echoing everyone else at this point but there's no shame in reaching out to the hiring manager. It sounds like they might've moved forward with someone else but I think making that move regardless is good experience for you. Good luck!

I say go for it, no harm in selling yourself!

Will do! Thank you for your encouragement :)

Why not? I think it's a great opportunity to make a strong, positive impression and maybe position yourself in front of the other candidates. Even if they've already decided to go with someone else, this might put you at the top of their list for the next time an opening comes up.
