Following up with hiring manager after application?

Absolutely do it :) What's the worst that could happen? They don't respond and that's it. Another high-impact thing that I always do, when looking for a role, is to email the HR person directly. These days email addresses are basically public so it's not hard to find those. :)

Sure, doesn’t hurt. I am hiring and people follow up with me on LinkedIn all the time.Especially if you can find the actual hiring manager for the role you applied to go ahead and shoot them an email.It can help to point out the ways that you feel you are a great fit and meet the job requirements. YMMV
