Thank you email is okay. I connected with my interviewers on LinkedIn after the interview and included the “Thank you for your time, it was great connecting with you..” note along with the connection request.

Yes. It can be used in the event of a tie.

Likely won’t help, but definitely won’t hurt. At worst, they ignore it. At best, they are appreciative and if tips the scale in your favor.

Yes send an email! I do a lot of interviewing for my firm and if someone doesn’t send a thank you email we tend to think they are not interested

Thanks all. I really appreciate the insight.

Hmmm my first industry gig they made me interview with 950 people so I didn’t send thank you emails. Second gig was maybe 3 interviews so I went ahead and sent them to everyone except the CEO.

I always do as they did take the time out fo their day to talk to me. Additionally to reiterate my interest and in somecases disinterest but to keep the door to communication open. Works well so far. Still in touch with a few interviewers and many recruiters.

Currently making 100 base. Was asked during an interview what it would take and I said 140. They came back with 145. I was initially excited but now I think I lowballed myself. Should I have held out and made them give me the range?

Hi Everyone! I applied for a position with Citi and had my interview on Feb 11. Unfortunately, I failed to ask the interviewer after the interview what were the next steps in the process and haven't heard from them or the recruiter in 2 weeks. I did send a thank you email shortly after our interview. Should I send a follow up email to both asking where I stand? or should I wait it out?

I’m having a hard time landing an internship in my last semester mostly bc I have no experience (yes I know that’s not good) but I was pretty much forced to spend summers at home my first few years of school. So I’ve started the process too late and now most places do not want to hire someone without any experience. I’ve interviewed for a couple of serious roles at Leidos and APL logistics but I’m not confident they’ll offer me any thing. Where do I go from here?

Made it to the Technical Assessment portion of the interview process. Need to take brand elements and create an ad using photos, fonts, logos, etc. Seems super easy and there’s not much actual designing involved. But assuming it’s supposed to be and they just want to see I can follow the brand guidelines. They’ve seen plenty of my actual design work and we’ve discussed what I’ve done in my career. I’ve typically been asked to design something from scratch. Does that sound right?

I don’t think I could make this up. Interviewed with a recruiter, hiring manager, in house counsel, legal staff. I was told I was in final and was asked to supply half a dozen references who all submitted written recs. No decision so I was asked to interview with in house clients. Company still can’t make a decision so I am being asked to submit my final overall desired comp package. Mind you - this is not an AGC, DGC, or GC role, and not even F500 company. Thoughts? Is this normal now?
