Although sending a thank you note after an interview does not signify your qualifications for the position, it can set you apart from equally qualified applicants if the knowledge and skills of each applicant is significantly close. I always suggest that applicants do things to set themselves apart from the competition - in a good way of course.
Sending a thank you note immediately after your interview may be just the thing that sets you apart. Honors for good grades and awards for community service, excellent attendance, or for special talents in athletic/music/art should always be included on your resume. Why? Because they set you apart. Why would you not want to let a potential employer know the good things about you? The same goes for thank you notes.
Immediately after your interview, be sure to send each interviewer a personalized thank you note reaffirming your interest or mentioning an important aspect of the meeting. Again, you want to make the employer remember you, in a good way, and you want to create a strong desire for them to really want to hire you as well.
