I didn’t send a thank you email following a third interview on Monday, because up until that point, everything had been so quick and I thought the interview went so great, that I would hear back quickly. It’s now Friday and no word. Did I just screw myself out of my dream job?

Depends on the person, but probably not. I don’t even notice when interviewees don’t send me thank you emails. I only notice when they DO because I’m annoyed by having another email in my inbox.

This is exactly what I was thinking.

Didn’t realize thank you notes are such a serious matter. I personally never expect to receive them after I interview someone and if I do get them, it doesn’t affect my decision-making process in any way. Interviewing potential hires is part of our job and the lack of excessive gratitude certainly shouldn’t be a disqualifying factor, in my opinion…

No.

I don’t think so, but if I were you I’d send a thank you today.

I’ve been interviewing for a position at EY . The role I applied for and was referred for is a Senior Consultant. However, when I’ve been receiving emails for interview scheduling confirmation I’ve noticed it only says Consultant. Is there a difference between Consultant and Senior Consultant at EY or are they the same? What’s the pay difference for both, if there is one? I just want to make sure they’re not trying to bump me down from the level I actually want to be considered for. Thanks!

In the later stages of interview process for an in-house exec role for a small company.

Company wants me to talk tomorrow to the exec search firm too so they can evaluate my experience. Feeling a lot of self doubt as the other candidate is a senior leader and has done this before - whereas it’s more of a stretch role for me… any advice?!

I feel totally blindsided by the interview I just had. I talked informally with Partner 1 before the interview and was told the position would be in one of the firm’s satellite offices. Then, during an interview with Partner 1 and Partner 2, Partner 2 mentioned that I’d have to move to the state where the firm is headquartered because he believes face-time is really important for training/mentoring. I have no plans to move and really hope this wasn’t all a huge waste of time.
