No response to thank you note after callback

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Oct 04, 2010 10:53 am

I sent an email thank you note after a callback last week and haven't received a response. From everybody's experience, is this bad or does it not matter?

Does not matter; from my experience, most interviewers don't respond.

does not matter...most interviewers in every field do not respond to thank you notes.

Just checked my inbox.

9 callbacks total.

at least 1 response: 4 callbacks, 3 of them turned into offers.

no responses: 5 callbacks, 0 offers.

You gambled and you lost. Either the interviewers are annoyed by your cluttering their inboxes or there was a typo in your note. Either way, you are screwed. :twisted: :twisted:

Those who read this should not add this to their list of things to obsess over. There is little to no correlation between responses to notes and offers.
