Is it too soon to send an email asking for an update on the hiring process?

I think it’s a good amount of time to wait.  You could insert phrases like “I enjoyed meeting with you, I hope you received my card in the mail, I look forward to hearing from you soon, etc.

I’d wait until Wednesday or Thursday, especially if you think the thank you card arrived recently. Keeping in mind that Friday was the 4th, and no mail was delivered, she may have just received it on Monday. When you do email her, just keep it light. Thank you again for your time, looking forward to meeting you again, etc.

Here’s vwhat I have found: If they want you, they will let you know. Sending emails after your thank you letter make you sound desperate and could be annoying.  If you don’t hear by the projected start date, send a follow up asking if they’ve made a decision yet or were still in the process of screening candidates.

In the mmeantime,  don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Ive been to second interviews where they’ve told me they really liked me, checked references (glowing reviews) only to receive a letter two weeks later thanking me for my time. Just goes to show, you never know.
