I am making it through a tough interview process! Delighted to learn my references have been contacted landing me through one more hoop in the process. I kind of want to send a little thank you gift to them for being helpful….But I also don’t want to be weird
Do you send them a thank you note + gift?

No, it is business not personal. A gift is too much, it could come across as bribing. You can send a thank you email. I’m sure that would be more than enough

Thank you for talking me down! That is exactly what I needed to hear. It is business and not personal. 🙂

Obviously you wouldn’t mean it this way but some employers, if they heard you had given a gift to your referee, may misconstrue it as you having bribed them to give a good reference.
