Do not do this.
I respect your suggestion but I'm honestly livid. Spent too much time on my application to be rejected in the first round.
Rejected as in really rejected, or rejected as in no JS1 yet? No salt, just curious.
No JS1 yet. No worries.
Just a thought: when did you submit? Based on your earlier post, it looks like you only submitted end of November, which means you still have plenty of time before "No JS1" really starts to mean anything. Some people are getting them, and I totally understand getting antsy, but some people who apply in September only get their JS1 in March. It really becomes a matter of whose desk you land on and how quickly the turnaround happens. Keep in mind, too, there are a plethora of applicants in mid- to late-November, so it might just be a waiting game at this point. Should you not hear by March it's probably okay to reach out and say that you're still extremely interested, but now is probably too early.
EDIT: If you want to update them about work changes, that's fine, though. In that email you could add a sentence to the effect of, "I'm extremely excited about the prospects of HLS," or something like that, but I wouldn't go too crazy.
