Sending Thank You Notes After You Know You Didn't Get the Job

Your Two Cents: Sending Thank Yous After You Didn't Get the Job

Something I read this weekend suggested sending a thank-you note to an employer, even after you've been told you're not the candidate of choice. The article said the letter should go to whomever makes the decisions or the human resources rep, but doesn't need to go to everyone that interviewed you. That way, if another job opens up at the same company they may remember your unique politeness and reach out to you for another opportunity.

Sending thank-you notes after an interview is a given, but what do you think about sending a note after you've been told no?
