    Phil - "sums up your point" - what exactly is your point? I think I speak for all the recruiters; we understand interviews are a two way street & perhaps a study/article about this should be written too (if it hasn't already) but you haven't stipulated what mistakes you have seen made... rejected much?
    Tammy - Have to agree. A thank you note from an interviewee would be a bit... odd.

    What do you mean by this?
    What sort of "professional" uses words like this in this context?

    If I received a 'thankyou' note from someone I had just interviewed I would see it as extremely over the top and a bit creepy if honest

    As a professional in the recruitment field I would be genuinely interested in reading your comments.
    Recruitment is a two way street and feedback from candidates is so important
