Today, a first year associate suggested that I should write thank you emails to everybody I have worked with (who are in other offices) and write thank you cards to every attorney I have worked with at this office. Is this the norm? Should I be doing this? I know that writing thank you emails after interviews has been debated a lot. Honestly, I did them last year but I think they were useless.
This sounds very strange. I would definitely ask another more senior associate. Maybe this first year was messing with you?
Sounded very strange to me too! The first year associate actually did this last year when she was an SA, so I know she is not messing with me. But I will definitely ask other senior associates because I am not comfortable with this myself.
