I had a phone interview yesterday (if you can even call it that) with the immediate supervisor and I have phone interviews with the COO and a VP within five days. At what point should I start the note/phone call/email follow-up process?
Write your note now
I would write your thank you note now, maybe call on Monday to thank him for the interviewing opportunity on Friday. He'll get your note on Tuesday or Wednesday.
I wouldn't use email for a thank you.
I would also have notes ready to write immediately after your interviews with the COO and VP. I keep a package of Thank you cards in my desk, and I end up writing a couple per week.
Good luck next week on your interviews.
Thanks for the good wishes.
I'm going to drop the handwritten note in the mail today and start the process.
By the way, the email is the third tier follow-up recommendation in the MT interviewing series. Only to be used after the handwritten note and phone call. There's no way it would be the first or even second thing I do to follow up!
