Yay. Email at the least.

ALWAYS! How is this even a question?

Always a thank you, preferably by email. Don’t do it via social media. Had an applicant try to connect with me on Facebook after the interview. Nope. Uh uh. No way.

If you're interested, yes.

If you're not, no.

Yey- but paperless post is better because it’s more realistic that they’ll/ I’ll open it

Just email is fine. I don’t want physical notes cluttering up my space / going in the trash.

Yay. Could sometimes be a tie breaker between two relatively equal candidates

@AE1 I personally prefer email because it’s easier to start a conversation; that being said I’ve gotten some kickass handwritten notes!

Always - hand written notes

Yes

Yas

Yay!

Always. To give thanks and reflect on the opportunity.

Etiquette demands it

Always!!

Yes! 100%. I always respond with a thank you via email the same day followed by an in person one a few days later.

And by person, I mean a handwritten thank you note that I deliver.

Yeah.. was more wondering about if I really wasn’t interested in the job... but guess it’s not worth burning bridges in the long run.

Always! Email is preferable, within 24 hours. Include specifics but keep it to a paragraph or so.

@ASD1 interesting - would you prefer an email over a handwritten note? I was always told handwritten notes were more personal and meaningful

I’ve been applying to commercial counsel in-house positions at tech companies for a few months now and haven’t even gotten a sniff. I’m at a top big law firm (4YOE) and have plenty of tech trans/IP experience, but it just seems like I can’t even get someone to look at me, even when I’m applying to jobs that feel like, if anything, I’m overqualified for. Anyone else having a similar experience/have any recommendations? Is the market just crazy right now?

Hi Team,

I work in-house and when I was interviewing I made it very clear that I was moving to in-house to have work life balance. I knew it was still figuring out the organizational part of the team but I thought since I said that was my biggest interest moving to in-house they wouldn’t hire me if it weren’t the case. Well it wasn’t and working has been incredibly tough. I’ve learned fairly early that I am happiest when I get to spend time with family and friends and without that I become depressed.

If you’re a senior/ director level, would you consider a role with only a 2 week vacation policy?

I have an offer that’s a decent bump in pay (not amazing, but something that’s making me consider it) but they only have a 2 week vacation policy and will not budge on anything. I currently work for a place with unlimited pto and last year was so hectic that I only used 4 days. I can’t imagine going full throttle into a new role without taking a break in the next two months. Not sure what to do.
