How late can I send a thank you note?
Keeping this in consideration, is it OK to send a late thank you note?
Thank you notes should ideally be sent within 48 hours of receiving a gift or act of kindness, but it is never too late to say thank you! Do not let the passage of time stop you from expressing your appreciation for another's thoughtfulness.
Also, is it too late to send a thank you email? Yes, it's too late. Thank-you letters must be sent the same day or else they come off as an afterthought. In the meantime, don't call or e-mail the HR person. He will contact you if he's interested in going forward with you.
Moreover, how do you apologize for sending a late thank you note?
Be honest and apologize for the delay. For example, you might say, “Please forgive my delay in sending this note. I truly appreciate your gift and the thought you put behind it.” Don't make excuses unless you have a genuine reason for sending your notes late, such as being ill or dealing with a personal crisis.
What is etiquette for thank you notes?
Thank-you notes should be written as soon as the patient feels well enough—or a friend or relative can write the notes to acknowledge the gifts. It's also okay to call or email close friends rather than write.
