I recently met with an external recruiter that my company is going to be using to help us fill some of our open positions. Clearly this is an individual that I want to build a relationship with and add to my personal network.
However, in this scenario I am his customer. Typically a vendor would send a thank you note to a new client after the first introductory meeting. So my question is, should I wait a day or two in order to allow him to send me a thank you note first, or should I just go ahead and send him a note to thank him for meeting with me.
Part of me wants to wait, simply to see if he's going to send a thank you note or not :)
