Thank You Emails?

I want to send some post-interview thank you emails, but I don't have the email addresses of the people I interviewed with. Should I email the recruiting contact asking for the email addresses, or just leave it alone? [more inside]

How do I communicate employment enthusiasm without alienating anyone?

How do I explain a belated e-mail in a professional context? And how does one write a letter of inquiry to someone who already has the job? Bean-plate overthinking inside. [more inside]

I really want to work for you, but if that's not going to happen then I really want to go to Europe.

Following up on a second job interview: they said the selection process would be "very quick." It's now been two weeks without hearing back from them. Do I follow up? I'd be happy to be patient, but there's a twist. [more inside]

Going-Away Gift

EmploymentFilter: I'm leaving a professional position tomorrow after eight months and the requisite two weeks' notice. It hasn't been a particularly good match for me (skills, interests, etc...) but my boss has nevertheless been a good guy to work for and has both tried to find ways to use my background and skills, and to give me opportunities to learn more.

Is it bad to accept one job while holding out for another?

I am unemployed. I recently applied for 2 jobs. I'm much, much more interested in Job A. I will find out if I got Job B on Monday, while the application process for Job A will drag on until early March. Would it be unacceptable for me to accept Job B, while holding out for the potential of Job A? Job B is a full-time, junior position at popular website with a small, close-knit staff.

What is the etiquette for putting future employment on your resume?

What is the etiquette for putting future employment on your resume? I will be a summer associate for a law firm between May and August, but am circulating my resume to other employers in anticipation of the interview process next fall. Is it acceptable to put "[Law Firm] - Summer Associate, May 2004 - August 2004" on a resume that you are handing out today?
