I get so confused by all the information out there on this interview stuff. I read a ton of articles on how you are supposed to send a thank you letter within twenty-four hours after an interview and the first two interviews I had. I did this.
One of them directly stated that the thank you letter was not needed and made me appear desperate in their refusal letter. Another job told me I was passed by because I didn't send a thank you letter.
Then I got a job that I sent a thank you to and they still tease me about how corny it was to thank them for their time. I still don't know what to do.
I guess the moral of the story is damned if you do damned if you don't. Just like the blank sheet typed in black resume. My firm would not even give a run of the mill resume a second glance. Color makes it pop and makes you look like you care about the impression you are trying to convey. However other departments won't even accept a resume if it's on colored paper.
