thank-you emails to interviewers?


Recommended Posts

Yesterday I interviewed with a program I'm really excited about, and I was wondering if it's customary to send a thank-you note. I don't want it to seem like I'm sucking up in some aspect... but I'm really worried and I might be overthinking it.

 

What have you all done in this situation?

I just sent an email to the POI I want to work with... god I can't wait for this to be over so I can stop ruminating about it.

 

I love how I spent much of the interview day talking about how awesome mindfulness and self-compassion is, and all I can do is worry about how it went! My fiancee is ironically the one who keeps telling me to stay in the present moment. Ah well...

I interviewed individually with 6 professors at a recent interview, and emailed all of them yesterday. I pointed directly to certain topics that came up in the interviews, and thanked them for inviting me to campus. I've already heard back from 3 of them, one of whom has said she will support my admission (yay!) - I say go for it. Can't hurt (unless you say something ridiculous in the email, that is).

I always assumed it was common courtesy to send a thank you message to every interview, both for job and school.

 

I'd probably send them a short "Thank you for the interview, it was very helpful/informative for me and I look forward to contacting you again in the future" email.
