Should I give up looking for email addresses of everyone (5) that interviewed me today and just send the thank-you to the one I have? [more inside]

How do I say "Psst...I'm still available for that 9-to-5..."?

I interviewed for this position over a month ago, and it went really well. According to a family friend who also works there (and informed me of the available position to begin with), I was a top contender for the job, but they ultimately went with another person with experience, whereas I had none (even though it was entry level - but I get it, experience is better than lack thereof. No hard feelings here). PLOT TWIST: Two days ago, I find out via friend that they just discovered this new person lied about having a degree, so she's as good as gone. Friend suggested I send a nonchalant email to remind them of my existence, hinting at the fact that I'm still available. How do I do this subtly without it sounding awkward as hell after over a month? I don't think I'm supposed to know about this turn of events because friend was pretty hush hush about it, and I certainly don't want to throw friend under the bus or get him in trouble. How do I go about this? [more inside]

Quick interview follow-up email question

So last Monday, April 8th, I interviewed for a summer internship. The interviewer mentioned I should hear back sometime this week, and I wanted to send him an email to let him know how interested I am in this internship (of course, under the guise of "I wanted to know if the position has been filled" etc). During the interview, we talked about running for a little bit. It turns out he runs half and full marathons, pretty seriously. Would it be out of place to include something like "In our interview, you mentioned you run marathons. I wanted to extend my condolences if you or anyone else were affect by the events..."? I'm hoping to send the email before 5:00 tonight. [more inside]

Am I overthinking follow-up for a job interview?

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. [more inside]

Where's the line between assertive and obnoxious?

I interviewed for a job I really want on the 6th of June, sent a follow-up/thank you note a few days later, and have so far heard nothing. Is there any way I can do a second follow-up without being horribly irritating? If so, how and when? [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]
