Quick question - thank you note

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Mar 23, 2012 11:37 am

Quick question guys. I just got back from an interview and I can't find email address to the individuals that emailed me (this was for an in-house position). I could technically add them on Linkedin and send a thank you note, but I think that's inappropriate.

Should I just thank the HR person who arranged it and ask her to forward my thank you to the individuals that interviewed me?

You could ask the HR person for the interviewer's contact info and send them both, the HR person and the interviewer, thank you notes. Also, I'm a big fan of handwritten than you notes, if that matters.

If you know a name and have any other person's email at that firm/organization, you might be able to figure out how their email addresses are generated.

If John Smith is jsmith@lawfirm.com, then Sue Jones is probably going to be sjones@lawfirm.com

Or send a written thank-you note, since you have the firm's mailing address.

This was for an in-house department. So a no-go on having the HR person forward my thank you? I mean if they wanted me to contact them directly, wouldnt they have given me their cards?

Well, I think you (the interviewee) are the better judge of that than someone on an internet forum. However, another option would be to send the notes directly to the employer and address them to the interviewer and HR person. Also, can't you look through your email archives/sent mail to find the email address(es)?
