Interview thank you notes.

Is that still standard practice for experienced hires?

by Anonymousreply 810/16/2013

I interview a fair number of people, and I receive thank you notes from about half of them. I wish I didn't receive them at all. I think the practice is silly, and they certainly don't factor into the hiring decision--that's made within a few minutes after the interview.

Oh c'mon, R1. I don't think any applicant feels that their thank you note will curry favor; it is done in the spirit of good manners.

Thank you notes are actually a good idea, if they are thoughtful and well written. It's another opportunity to show your smarts.

Any advice regarding a thank-you note for a job interview for a promotion at a company you already work for? Outside applicants are also being considered.

Just give them all a big smooch

A short thank you note is appropriate, r4. It certainly won't lose you the job. Just be gracious and not needy.

I work in HR and I appreciate it. True it doesn't necessarily factor in, but it shows good etiquette which counts for something in this bitter old world.
