<p>I had an interview yesterday that I thought  went pretty well.  The one guy remembered me from last year.  He was surprised I didn't get hired last year.  Apparently no one told him why I wasn't chosen.  He asked me why I didn't take the<br>
 position and i told him it was because I was told that they decided to  cancel 1 of the 2 positions and so they offered the one position to someone  else.  That seemed to have him confused. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I "think" the rest of the  interview went pretty well. I asked a few questions back at them this time so that should help.  I met one of the people I would be working with and I think I answered all of her questions pretty well.  Then I met a third guy  who I think was the head of the department.  He was nice enough, but I am not sure how well I did on selling myself to him.  I started getting  nervous with him.  Hell apparently he had been in the position for only a couple of weeks.  Sooooo I am hoping that the other 2 people give him good  feedback on me.  All I can do now is wait.<br>
 </p>
<p>So my question to the wisdom of the PRT is should I send Thank You letters, typed, since my handwriting is HORRIBLE to the 3 people of which I only got 1 business card with an email address on it, I think I remember the other guy's name and the lady I interviewed with I only got her first name. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Or should I contact the lady that set up the interview and see if she can confirm the names and emails for all 3 people I talked to and email them the thank you letters?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Help!</p>

<p>I'd email them.  Individual emails, though, personalized.</p>

<p>I am a fan of handwritten thank you cards.  As Maureen said, individualized ones to each of the people you met.  If you can't find their contact info online, call the receptionist or HR person or whoever set up the interview to confirm the names, titles, spellings, etc.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>I like handwritten cards as well...but if you want to get to them more quickly, and you need to make sure you get to each of them, I'd email.  It's very acceptable today and a typed note on paper, I think, would actually seem LESS personal than an email.</p>

<p>I'm a bigger fan of typed up emails. Snail mail cards? That's so old school. It makes you appear a little stodgy.</p>
