I have been interviewing interns for our spring internship program and one of the candidates recently sent me an email basically reiterating what he considers his strengths, thanking me for the time to interview him, and letting me know that he appreciated the opportunity. Now, I know people say that after an interview it's in good taste to send a thank you letter, so I understand that aspect of it. However, I never had one sway my decision. For this particular case, my team decided that he wouldn't be a good fit for us, so we already told HR to move to our 2nd tier list. So my question is this. For anyone that has experience hiring people, have you ever been swayed by a thank you letter? Do you see any value in receiving one?
