If the risk of sending over an imperfect thank you note after interview is much higher than not sending one, should I still send one then? From an interviewer perspective, have you ever 1) rejected a candidate because they didn’t send a thank you note, or 2) changed your hiring decision from no to yes due to a great thank you note?

The thank you note has never impacted my hiring decision.

I detest ingrates, so I wouldn't allow my team to even consider hiring a candidate who can't find it within themselves to acknowledge their interviewers with a smidge of appreciation. I couldn't care less about how the note is structured, so long as the gesture is extended. We all have important things to do with our time, such as run a deals team, and feed our families. Last thing anybody wants is a selfish prick within their group. Enough with the stupid insecurities, and do the right thing.

It’s hilarious that you can acknowledge you’re busy but expect a candidate to send out a thank you note or they wont get the job? The candidate is working their actual job + simultaneously interviewing for multiple positions with multiple rounds and multiple people in each round. Do you need a thank you email from your boss every time you turn in a deliverable?

I was told I did not get a job after a good interview because I didn’t show enough interest. The interviewers both provided their emails at the end and I didn’t reach out. Can’t 100% confirm that was the reason but I think if I did email it might have swung the offer my way. Tbh they were right and I wasn’t interested but still it’s easy to send a simple thank you.

Just make the thank you note short and simple to decrease the risk.

My hiring decision has never been influenced by thank you note (or lack thereof).

It’s the thought that counts. Whether it’s structured poorly or not, those candidates who take the time to write one stick out to me. I want them on my team

Feel like such a gigantic failure in life. Sat out of the market since the lows of 2009. Saved a lot but had no real growth of those savings. No debt ever. Watching nearly everyone increase their net worth on a daily basis via speculation in stocks - and everything seems to work all the time, regardless of which stock. Folks buying stocks, bitcoin, houses worth $1M+ left right and center. Each day is spent marveling at the money printer globally, thinking how this can go on endlessly.
