Thank You Notes & Human Resources


As a Human Resources professional, I don’t expect a thank you note after an interview. Here’s a punk rock HR tip:

  • Sending a thank you note has no bearing on whether or not you get a job. If you feel compelled to follow-up on our interview, please save a tree and send an email.

I operate differently as an aunt, a sister, and a cousin.

  • If you don’t send a thank you note, you won’t get a gift on the following holiday.

Am I keeping score? You bet I am — and you’re on notice.
