Does Every E-mail from Prospective Employer Need Reply?


Dear Experts,

Does every little e-mail from a prospective employer need to be replied to? (i.e. Interview confirmations/itineraries, small notes about phone/in person interviews)

Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:

Q#207 I’m a fan of acknowledging receipt of documents & information. “Thanks or Got it” removes guess work. (@dawnbugni)

Q#207 No, every email does not require a response. Confirm an interview. Otherwise, no need unless something requires it. (@DebraWheatman)
