How Many Thank-You Notes to Send After an Interview

Ask Savvy: How Many Thank-You Notes Should I Send After the Interview?


This post is by reader hiptobesquare in our Ask Savvy group. Weigh in with your thoughts below.

I have a question re: thank-you notes after job interviews . . .

This is a multiround hiring process, and I really want the job, and I sent out thank-you notes after the first interview to the people I spoke with (phone interview) and have another phone interview. The question is, do I send a thank-you note to the same people again (since they may be on the call) or do I leave it at the one with a more informal email follow-up. Then if I do progress onto the third, it's an in-person interview where I have to travel, and it will likely be all of the same people again.

Any ideas are welcome!

Congratulations on snagging a second interview — you must be very excited. I see how you're confused about whether to send the same people thank-you notes since you have multiple rounds of interviews. In my opinion, I would send casual thank-you emails to the people who I've already sent notes to. However, if you have different people interviewing you, I would go ahead and send them thank-you notes. Expressing gratitude after an interview is very important and always remembered by interviewers, but you also want to be careful of going overboard. Good luck on rounds two and three!
