Last week I had an interview for a faculty position. I haven't received any response yet. But today one of my papers received best paper award in an esteemed IEEE conference.
Is it professional, and wise to share this information via email to concerned people at the hiring committee? I don't want to look like very childish or eager for this position (although I am eager because the university is among the top-ranked in China). But I want to share this info - who knows it may have a positive impact on the decision!
