Hi ladies, I had an interview yesterday morning. You can read about it here.
Here is my question. I interviewed with three different women, all separately. Do I send each one an email? And what do I say in the email? I basically just want to thank them for interviewing me and tell them how nice it was to meet them. So how do I write this out so it is nice and professional?
Thanks in advance!

I would send each a separate email or card in the mail. Say thank you for their time, you really appreciate learning more about the company, and you hope to have the opportunity to speak with them again or something like that. I think you should keep it simple and sincere. Good luck with the job!

@Schatzie821: That sounds good, thank you :). But what should I put in the subject line of the email? “Thank you”?

I use the subject “Interview Follow-up” and always include a question in my thank you email. I would also send thank you cards (today)– those I just say thank you, without the question. Actually,

The way I usually do it is to simply say “thank you,” and then follow up on a point I made, or perhaps ask one more question. (A question that’s either technical or position based, but the most important part is that its simple and straightforward for the person to ask.)
Here’s kind of what I mean,
Good morning, I hope you’re well today. I just want to take a moment and say, “Thank you” for taking the time to speak with me yesterday about the X position at X. I really enjoyed our discussion of X.
After our discussion, I realized I had overlooked/failed to mention X. Can you please tell me XXXX?

@LadyBlackheart: I usually make the subject line “November 5th Interview” so they’re able to organize their emails easily.
Also, if the company has a formal recruitment process, they may print out emails and put it in your file so the entire hiring committee will see them. For that reason, do NOT copy and paste the same email to each interviewer. Vary it slightly, and definitely mention any person details that may have come up (ie – if one interviewer said she is going on vacation next week, wish her a relaxing week off).

I usually go with something like “Nov 6th Interview Follow Up”, and would write a different email to each (incase they compare notes you don’t want them identical). And as PPs have said including a question is a good idea. It shows that you’re interested in the details of the job and also kinda forces them to respond to you. May sound silly but having that extra contact and extra converstion can help make you stand out from other interviewers just because they spent more time with you.

Thanks everyone! I sent all three emails and I made each one of them different. And I have already received a response! This is what she said. Btw, this is the first woman who interviewed me.
“Thanks so much for checking in, LadyBlackheart. We really enjoyed chatting with you yesterday! We will be at the trade show in NY through Wednesday, but when we get back, we are hoping to make some decisions. Thanks again – we will check in with you after we return!”
Do you think that’s a good sign?? I really hope I get this job!
