Do thank you notes even help? I usually thank them at the end of the interview so it seems a bit too extra to send another email.

I like to send a thank you note a few hours after the interview with a point that shows I remember something from our conversation. It could be something as simple as “I really enjoyed learning more about how X tool is utilized on your team”. I don’t think it’s too extra as they could very easily ignore your note if they chose to. In the end it could be down to you and another candidate who is exactly the same skills wise, but you sent a thank you note and they didn’t. Ya never know!

I fee the same way. Most of my interviews have been done virtually. And I don't even have the contacts details ofy interviewers and was just thinking to myself "do I send a thank you note to the recruiter/HR? "

Thank you notes are great. But what’s going to be important is you stay confident and know you are the prize!

Can’t hurt! It may feel extra, but I add in “let me know if there’s more information I can provide” (maybe worded better than that lol) so it’s not just a one-line “thanks.”

I sent 2 thank you notes to diferentes hiring managers and they never answered, of course I didn’t get any job.

Besides saying thank you for your time, it gives you a chance to look over your notes and make any extra points you may have forgotten in the heat of the interview.

Hi All! I need some help. I got recently laid off and I am going to start interviewing for roles soon. Should I tell recruiter that I’m not in the company anymore? If so, what should I say? (I got fired due to my performance, but my manager set me up for failure from the beginning, aka toxic leader).
Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?

I am a legal assistant (working on paralegal program), new to the field after a career change. I was let go from my last position for performance issues, although I was the 6th hire for the position in 18 months.
My main question is, how would I explain the situation to potential employers/recruiters so that I don't come across as a poor employee? I don't want to lay the blame on that firm; I gained a lot of skills there, even if it didn't work out
