    So after my interviews, I wrote Thank You emails to my interviewers. However, none of them replied back. Is this normal? I'm asking because I'm wondering if they received the email or not...or if they even read emails like this.

      I've sent plenty of thank you notes and only one responded. However, in that one I asked a question. So in short, yes it's normal

        I wouldn't worry about it. You shouldn't expect anything, usually they are very busy and probably don't pay much attention to it, but its still a nice gesture.

          I wrote thank-you notes after my first interview. Nobody responded back. One month later, I got accepted. Then I went on to 3 other interviews, and didn't even bother to write anything. The results? 3 more acceptances!!!!!!

          Don't expect your thank-you email or note to make or break your interview. I agree with everyone that it's a nice gesture.

            6 thank you emails sent. 3 replies. Since it's just a 'thank you,' we shouldn't expect a reply.

            If you send a physical thank you card, it's never customary to receive a reply. Maybe email is the same way.
