What are people’s thoughts on sending thank you emails vs thank you cards? Want to know if it seems too much. And when in the process in a series of interviews makes sense to send one or the other?

Cards will be interpreted as stalkerish/creepy

I think that cards are extremely thoughtful. I have received one and we hired the person. It’s not creepy in my opinion

Always send a thank you note. Some people appreciate more if it’s handwritten.

like

By the time a handwritten thank you note is snail mailed delivered, it’s probably past their decision making time. Also, people at my agency don’t even know we have mailboxes. Literally. There’s mail from 2016 I found the other day. Email guarantees it arrives. I always write the draft day-of, to send first thing the next day. And with gmails new scheduling feature you can have it send start-of-biz the next day so it’s top of their inbox

You just said everything I was going to say. My last 2 agencies had no mailboxes and the receptionist routinely tossed out mail if it wasn't for finance. Maddening. I appreciate a handwritten note but email is so much safer.

like

My rule of thumb is email for a phone interview. Card for in person

like

nah, I think it’s cute if you pick a nice card and have beautiful hand writing. Sure it’s a little old fashioned, but I’d do it in addition to sending an email.
