Thank You notes
Career advisers tell jobseekers to send a thank you note after an interview. Won't the employer think that an applicant is desperate and a sissy applicant if he sends a thank-you letter?
Rarely does an employer not pleased to receive a thank-you letter. It must be tailored to your prospective company and the officer who made the interview. Mostly, a handwritten note is okay if the interviewer and the applicant have built rapport.
Will it be okay to e-mail the thank you note?
If the people in the company use e-mail in all of their communication and correspondence, then it should be acceptable. This will also apply if the company is into fast decision making when hiring applicants. Always remember that even if e-mails fit in with the culture of the company, it's still a better idea to follow up the email with a hard copy of your thank you.
Will a borrowed thank-you letter do?
Surely, there are employers who can distinguish a thank-you note that has been copied or not.
If it was a panel interview should thank you letters be sent to all interviewers?
How soon should a thank-you note be sent?
The golden rule is to send thank you notes within 24 hours after the interview.
Will it still be okay to mail the thank you note if the hiring decision will be made sooner than when the mailed thank you note is received?
What if there's already an offer before even sending the thank you notes?
