It's a nice touch for sure, but not required. But there should be no expectation from the business that you MUST write one.

I have interviewed many people for jobs and while they are a nice touch they are not going to help you get the job.

It's definitely a nice touch, and on occasion where the note was very personalized and did a compelling job of further selling the candidate, it did bump them to the top of the list. Rarely does it make that much of a difference, but I'd just err on the side of caution and send one just in case.

Doesn’t make a difference.

Never hurts to send a quick thank you email

Add's a human touch.

It's not really a requirement but it's much appreciated. Just don't expect it to help boost you up. It's more so for courtesy.

Absolutely! I got an animated e-card from a candidate and it was the icing on the cake to hire her. The card made me smile for sure and was creative and thoughtful.

I also send thank you notes to candidates I interview.

I am wondering how do you answer to "Why do you want to join company XYZ?" in a situation when you are approached by a headhunter and it is relatively small and unknown company? My answer would be, "you approached me so you tell me why I should want to join your company" but not sure they would appreciate it :D And of course I am talking about Interview 1 or pre-screening call with the headhunter, not the final interview round for which I would set up a time to prepare the answer

funny

Am I wrong in thinking that failing to follow up with a candidate after the initial phone screen (not the interview) is not a deadly sin? We talk to 30-40 people every week, and as much as we try, some people (especially the ones who show negative attitudes) do not hear back from us.
