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 Jun 12 '18 at 18:25

    @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. – David K Jun 12 '18 at 18:33

  • @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. – EricDraven Jun 12 '18 at 18:43

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.
