A little over two weeks ago, I interviewed internally for a new position in a different department at my workplace. Everything seemed to go quite well, and the position seemed like a great fit, though I was given the ambiguous "we hope to make a decision soon" upon exiting the interview. I sent a thank-you email the next morning. I have heard absolutely nothing from the hiring manager since then. Would it be crass to send the manager a message, asking how the process is coming along and reiterating my interest? I have never been in this situation before with regard to being an internal candidate, so I'm not sure how to proceed without coming off as nosy or desperate, but I really feel like I have a lot to offer for the job (it is one where an internal candidate with knowledge of the company's day-to-day ops would have an undeniable advantage, IMO).
I do know for a fact that they had interviews scheduled for external candidates over the next 7-10 days at the time I interviewed. FWIW in case in matters, this is in a privately owned company, <500 employees, and the department I interviewed with only has about a dozen employees.
