@LadyJDAG:  Does the card that he did get have an email address on it? Usually all employees email addresses are formatted the same way- he wold just have to change the name.

Failing that, he could certainly ask HR for their email addresses or look on the company’s website if they have one.

I would recommend sending a thank you, reach out to whoever the HR coordinator has been guiding him through the interview process for the emails and send them electronically and then hurry up and sneak a hardwritten thank you card to the HR coordinator 🙂

@LadyJDAG:  Like a PP said, email addresses are formatted in the same way. [email protected]. He just had to substitue the first and last name. The only caveat is that common names often include a middle initial. That could turn an email address into [email protected].

I feel it is absolutely essential to send a thank you email to everyone who interviewed you (I’m a hiring manager for reference).

@LadyJDAG:  I wouldn’t worry about sending a card by snail mail. Email thank yous are enough. You’d be surprised how few people even do that anymore.

Did they give him a timeline?  I often don’t send snail mail thank yous after interviews because the process is done by the time it arrives.  I think just email is ok.

I work in HR and I get phone calls/emails ALL THE TIME after interviews asking for mailing address, correct titles/spellings of names for thank you cards (because apparently I’m the only person who gives a card during interviews?). It’s no big deal, ask the HR person.

ETA: One thank you is enough – email or snail mail. Any more than that gets weird and desperate. Also under the weird and desperate category is sending gift baskets, calling excessively, etc.

I have never sent out a Thank You card or email from an interview. Is it something that’s done in higher positions? I’ve only ever worked in retail or banking.

I’m glad he got it worked out =)
