A warning, i have been phished through the premise of a job interview.thats definitely a new low from scammers but verify interviews they plucked my info from indeed and through that got my info, when I got suspicious (after it was too late) I called the "hiring company" (was a real company) and they said i wasn't the only one getting duped. I can't believe people are praying on people looking for a job during a pandemic but apparently some ppl have no soul. Just wanted to share and be vigilant

Considering two senior associate offers. One at Embark in FAAS (lots of growth upside, great benefits and higher pay) vs. EY TAAG (SEC and Derivatives and Financial Instruments). I only have 1.5 years of big four experience so I’m considering going back to boost my resume, but Embark seems great and will be much more broad experience (like operational accounting advisory and such).

Yes. They are nice to receive and shows your appreciation.
I believe so even if you are a high level professional you are still competing with other high level professional to get the job so anything you can do to differentiate yourself including a thank you note.
I am a SM and thought the same but recruiter encouraged me to send them. I did eventually and i think theres no harm and in sending them
Not expected but I know old school people who won’t hire someone if they don’t send a thank you note/email.
Email OK? Or do they need to be handwritten and mailed?
