How late is too late for post callback thank you emails?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Nov 10, 2011 3:38 pm

I had a callback 48hrs ago. I usually send thank you emails the same day, but for various reasons I did not get around to it. I am worried that if I send them at this point, I may come across as lazy.

Is it too late?

Note: this is a large firm in a major market.

I'd say more than 72 hours including weekends would be too long, so you're fine. That is just me going by what I feel, though; I have no source to back that up.
