Sounds good, but to reiterate what Doug referred to above---get that thank you note out NOW.  Two  things will be accomplished--you demonstrate that you have good business manners--and that's important, and 2--you bring your name to the top of their memory when they read it and that never hurts to close the deal.

I fired out the thank you email, a very nicely written, short, but not too short, but very to the point and didn't forget to let them know how much of a positive impact that I believe I will have on the company.

Here's hoping! Worst case scenario, I still have a job (which I'm at now) and I can continue to gain income and hopefully scenes change here, or I'll get more interviews elsewhere!

Im curious if being sly was mentioned at all at your interview ?  Did you feel it affected how they perceived you in any way ?

Hi all!

Sly was not mentioned at all during the interview other than one of the female interviewers saying she liked my head to which I just gave a smile and said "why thank you".

Unfortunately, I got my hopes up yesterday when they called me and thanked me personally for coming in and asking if I was still interested in the position..(just to follow up). I wake up to an email this morning (an automated email, at that), saying they decided to go another direction.

Confused the hell out of me, but no big deal, I still have a current job and I'll continue my search. Thanks once again guys, I'll do the next interview I have the SAME exact way because it was 100% perfect (with your tips of course).

I guess I wasn't hipster enough for them? Knew I should have broken out the flannel!....

Sorry to hear that. Look at the positive though, you had practice with this interview so that you can be that much better at the next one. Good luck.
Life has three aspects: Paradox, Humor, and Change.

Paradox: Life is a mystery; don't waste time figuring it out.
Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure
Change: Know that nothing stays the same.

The cold, automated email has become so common.

A colleague has been working diligently to get into a new company. He's had multiple interviews and was told early on that they may simply no longer contact or respond to him. No hard feelings, just accept that if that happens we're no longer interested.

As it turns out after his last interview, which went really well, he received an email from the interviewer that they were "going in a different direction." It was clearly a form letter - nothing personal in it.

People are becoming so inconsequential these days.

I'd take the cold, impersonal email. These, days I find that if they "go in a different direction" you just cease to exist.

Dislike! But, like you said, at least you still have a job.
