I am in the initial stages of being considered for a position at a different company, where I was encouraged to apply by a friend (Who would also be my supervisor in the new position).

The first part was a semi informal sit down with him and two other people that were evaluating my knowledge base and how well I would get along with them. I had that yesterday, but one of the people was unable to attend, so there will be a followup with at least that person and future supervisor.

I normally send a thank you email for interviews, but not sure if I should send it now, or wait until I have the second interview. Do I send one now, and another one after the next session, or just wait until I've met all the players and send it then?

    @DavidK I think that this is the same as Crossedtheriverstyx pointed out; this question is about when to send it, not if you should.

    @DarkCygnus I can't tell because the comment is deleted, but we have a lot of questions about thank you notes. The most popular one is "Should a thank you letter be sent after an interview?", which I agree is different than this one. I think the question I linked is the same, because thought the words used are When versus Should, the context in both is really about multiple interviews and whether a thank you should be sent after each stage or wait until after the final stage.

  • @DavidK - I saw that question, and I would assume that the interviews there are either completely different panels or the same group. I wasn't sure if that covered an interview that had to be split because some members were unavailable.

Send the thank you immediately to all who attended. If someone is in the future interview who already received a thank-you note from you, it can only be to your benefit.
