Am I overthinking follow-up for a job interview?
February 20, 2013 11:52 AM Subscribe
Last week I had an interview at a very small (less than 10 people) start-up. I had previously had a phone interview with the scientist who is doing hiring for the position, which is fairly entry level, and which I think I'm well-qualified for. The person who did the phone interview thought I might be a bit *over*qualified for the current job, but as a small company they have a lot of people filling a lot of roles. I really, really want this job, but I'm stressing over some things, and I was hoping AskMeFi could give some guidance.

I met with *everyone* who works there and was given their business cards. It's a very small friendly company, and I was thinking that maybe I should e-mail each person individually and thank them for the interview... but it's been a week already and I'm stressing that I haven't already done this. Is it too late or should I just do it now? Should I send an e-mail or a physical letter? I feel like a letter would maybe be better at this point, because it doesn't have the expected immediacy of an e-mail. Would it just seem like I'm irresponsible / bad at this kind of thing? What kind of thing should I say? Should I mention the lateness?
I already sent a follow up e-mail to the scientist who is in charge of the hiring process with my references and the answer to a question that had come up concerning my start date.
