If you haven't heard back in that long there are two possibilities:

  1. You didn't get the job.
  2. You are through to the next stage but something has gone wrong communicating that to you.

You should get in touch with them to find out which it is. If if the first then contacting them won't hurt as you already don't have the job and you might get some feedback. If it's the second then contacting them is a good thing because they do want you and don't realist that something has gone wrong.

If they are still deliberating then really it's situation 1 and it won't hurt your chances to get in touch any way to see what's going on.

No problem, here is the "Is it over" email template from my book, might be of some use.

Dear contactName,

I’m conscious we are a little over two weeks since our last conversation and I’m hoping to get a status update on my application.

I understand that things can get caught up internally however I have other applications that are progressing and I’m keen to know where I stand with companyName as, while you are my first choice, I need to know if it’s time to move on.

Look forward to hearing back from you

Kind regards

yourName

Hopefully this is of some help
