I'm hoping someone out there can provide some advice to deal with these challenges I've faced regarding follow up thank you notes.

I've come across two challenges in my job search regarding thank you notes.

1) I've had two notes returned to sender.  The addresses I used were the same as what was listed on the business card.  Any recommendations on how to proceed?

2) I've had interviewers that are remote employees but have their business card address listed as the HQ location.

Both of these introduce significant delays in the TY note process.

Any recommendations on how to handle the two situations?

Thank you.

I would ask for the address if possible from someone else.  For example if a recruiter is setting up the interview for you I would let him or her know that you would like to follow up with a thank you note and ask what the best address is to send to.   Or, perhaps the receptionist at HQ can direct you on a good mailing address for a specific employee.  

As a last resort, if all else fails and you dont know the physical address I would send an e-mail.   I know it goes against career tools advice but an e-mail thank you note is better than no thank you note at all.
