It's a maternity leave replacement, but it seems that there will be opportunities to be hired for the following year as well. Woo hoo! Question - Do I send thank you letters/notes (like a card?) even though they offered me the job the day of the interview? Because I've always associated a thank you letter as a follow up in order to keep you in the running after an interview... But I've already got the job. What is the proper etiquette? Card with a handwritten message? Letter that is typed? I still have to fill out an application though. I want to finish the essay portion of it tonight.
