А мне бы, честно-то говоря, не хотелось этого делать -- разве что только в самом уж крайнем случае. Олвин про себя заинтересовался, что же именно Хилвар считал самым крайним случаем. И только он собрался предположить -- не без сарказма, -- что увиденное ими вполне стоит того, чтобы кого-то и разбудить, как Хилвар заговорил снова: -- Я вспомнил.
Я здесь давно не был и поэтому не уверен.

Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me and talk about the position of the Senior Digital Marketing Specialist with ABC Inc. yesterday. It was a pleasure to learn more about your approach to growing organic traffic.

Pro Tip: Don't forget to proofread your email. You can use apps like Grammarly or Language Tool to help you avoid nasty typos or bad syntax.
So, you’ve just written a stunning post-interview thank-you note.
What should you do with it now? When to send it? To whom to address it? Is a thank you email always okay or do you need a handwritten note?
It’s a lot to remember, but don’t worry—
It's best to send a thank you letter while you're still fresh in the interviewer's mind. So you should send the email message within 24 hours of the interview (the same day as the interview or the next). If the interview takes place on Friday, send a thank-you email on Friday afternoon or on Monday morning. Don’t send formal emails over the weekend.
Don’t have everyone’s email addresses?
Send one email to the person whose address you have and either ask them to forward your thank-you email to other interviewers, or ask for the email addresses of the other recruiters and email them directly.
Pro Tip: If you interview with multiple people, ask for business cards during the interview, so you don’t have to search or ask for emails later.
An interview thank you email will be your safest choice.
Why? Because it’s quicker than a snail mail interview thank you letter. Plus, a recent study has shown that 94% of hiring managers find post-interview thank you emails appropriate.
The only exceptions where it’s a good idea to send your thank-you letter via snail mail are:

A thank-you note after an interview is still a necessity since it might impact whether or not you get the job offer. Data from CareerBuilder indicates 22% of hiring managers are less likely to hire a candidate if he/she does not send a post-interview thank-you note since it can indicate a lack of follow-through or can send a message that they are not that serious about the opportunity. Why take that chance? Follow the guidelines below to give thanks in a way that is impactful.
Whether to use email or traditional mail:
The answer is that it depends. Either is considered acceptable usually. The best advice is to think about the culture of the organization. If the culture is more formal, you may want to go with a handwritten note or a letter that is sent by mail. If the company is more high tech, an email is a perfectly good option. Also think about what feels more natural to you. No matter what, do not text your thanks.
When to send:
Get your thank-you note out within 24 hours of the interview. This will show that you are prepared and will also help solidify your name in the mind of the person or people who interviewed you. Consider mapping out a thank-you template and adjust it for appropriate details after each interview.
What to include:
Keep the thank-you note short, sweet, and specific. The critical things to include are:
Sample Thank You Note:
Thank you for taking time today to discuss the open position of client service associate at ABC Company with me. Both the interview and the lunch with Pat Gallagher made for a great experience. I was impressed with the teamwork and innovative spirit of all the employees I met during my visit.
Your description of a “day in the life of an associate” helped me gain a clear picture of what I could expect working for ABC. Your willingness to share your goals for the department and for the new team of client service associates was valuable. I am excited about the possibility of using my experience in data management, business analytics, and social media marketing to help achieve your business goals. The interview solidified my interest in becoming a part of your team.
I look forward to hearing from you next week after you have completed your interviews and have returned from your vacation to St. Thomas. Do not forget to enjoy the molten lava cake at the Sunset Grill!

A few months ago I took a new job, shortly after my previous employer suddenly laid me off. I was grateful to be employed again so quickly — but I quickly realized this new job wasn’t for me.
I work in an office separate from most of my co-workers, the managers seem unhappy with their situations, the company is experiencing high turnover, and the work doesn’t excite me. While some of these challenges were described to me when I took the job, many were not.
Given how I was treated at my last company, I didn’t think I’d ever feel allegiance to an employer again. But I’m realizing that I’d feel genuinely bad leaving a company that gave me a chance when I was in a tough situation. It would seem like I was using them as a place holder until I found a better opportunity, and that’s not the kind of employee I want to be.
I believe upper management wants to keep me and cares about my well-being, but it’s hard to pinpoint solutions to the problems I’m facing. The job market is very good right now and I could probably find work elsewhere.Is it acceptable to consider leaving so soon?
It’s certainly acceptable to consider leaving. Sometimes things don’t work out, and there’s seldom a good reason to stay in a job you don’t like for any longer than necessary. Still, you might want to take your time before you jump — not out of loyalty, but out of selfishness.
First, set aside any feelings of guilt about possibly quitting. Ultimately, employers have to make bottom-line decisions, as you recently learned yourself. And employees have to do the same.
If this job isn’t good for you, and isn’t even quite what you were led to believe it would be, you have every right to move on without feeling bad about it. Be professional and respectful, and give adequate notice, but do what’s best for you.
Sure, it’s possible your new bosses will be irritated with you — but they should want employees who want to work for them, and are not just sticking around to avoid making anybody feel bad. (You didn’t ask about this, but having one short stint on your résumé isn’t a big deal in the long run.)
