Default Observership and Interview

I did an observership in New York and was invited for an interview at the same program. Should I send the thank you card now (2 weeks post observership), after the interview in Decemeber, or both?

I know its a silly question to ask. But i would really appreciate any advise about this. I dont wanna be that desperate person who sends too many thank you notes to gain attention. But I dont want them to think that Im ungrateful too.

I would send a thank you email to your supervisor, and all other staffs you know there (that's also what I did).
Send a hand writing thank you card with your picture after your interview will be enough. Good luck!

Hi! Thanks for your reply. Its already been a month since my observership and I dont know their email address. Should I ask the coordinator? Someone advised me to I send one after my interview. But I think ur advise is better.

Yeah you should consider sending them a thank you email for the observership itself. Try finding their office emails, maybe they're listed online. If not asking the program coordinator works just fine they'd be happy to help you out. It may be the same people that you worked with that are interviewing you. Always helps, doesn't hurt
