Is it ok to call the director of the department for which I applied to a job in?
I applied for a job last week. I called the human resources dept today to verify the position was still open and that my application was received. I did some research and found the name of the director of the department that the job was in. Is it inappropriate to call the director and introduce myself/ express my interest in the position?

Yes. What you're planning to do could make your application at risk.

I would. Sometimes HR loses your application and it never gets where it needs to go.
