This thread has revealed to me how desperate many are for work.
I don't know about other people, but I asked because I wanted to show a sign of respect.  One of my interviewers was in an unscheduled meeting with the CEO and the CFO at the time that we were scheduled to meet.  I'm not sure if he had to cut that meeting short to meet with me or if it ended by itself but the point remains that he goes from meeting with the heads of the Detroit branch to meeting with some piss ant college kid who wants to get an internship.  I figured I owed some gratitude to him and the rest of my interviewers.

Generally, I don't think appearing eager is going to be an issue, unless you start calling or emailing them everyday to discuss the status of your application.  A simple email to each place should be OK, even a followup email in a week or so is probably not appropriate if they haven't made a decision by then, but anything more than that might be too much.
Now this is something Mikey would do.  
Yeah, AC, I just sent my 25th thank you out this morning   .  You think this is too much.  FOR FARMER...
Mike didn't mean to suggest anything of the sort. I think notes are a polite gesture. And in fact, I'd like to see it work the other way around as well. The employer should write everyone a letter thanking him for his time, esp. if they don't get the job. I meant, rather, to suggest that while some find it amusing the lengths to which people will go with notes or e-mail or whatnot, I find within those great lengths the seeds of desperation.

It's nice to write a little bit more of a form letter when rejecting candidates though, in my opinion. My company has generally been very gracious towards those we don't select in interviews, and those that did well but finished 2nd, etc... have sometimes been offered jobs after the fact. They would probably be less likely to accept if they had just gotten a simple form letter from us instead of a phone call discussing the situation.

what I really hate are headhunters who call me out of no where, talk to me for an hour, and then never get back to me. I find the very rude.

I know exactly what you meant. I was just wanted to clarify my situation, and make an ernest joke. I too find the extreme lengths that people go to funny, in a desperate sort of way. Humor in other's desperation, Man, I am too wrong. And no, I didn't wear a brown suit to the interview. My horse got mud all over it when I was out in the fields last week.

Hey ladies and gentlemen.  Today I had interviews at a company for a summer internship job.  I interviewed with 4 different people at the company.  Should I send an e-mail to the people, thanking them for giving me the chance to interview?  Or would that be considered ass kissing?
For summer job, 4 people interviewed you? I think that's bit of an over kill. But anyways, it's good to write thank you letter. That illustrates that you care about the position and you are serious about it. Good Luck man.

It is an internship, after which 90 percent of the people are actually hired full time to the company, for the Detroit branch of a worldwide advertising agency. If I actually get it I'd be in a group with other interns from the other departments {I'd be in broadcast} and we have to come up with our own campaign and present it to the executive board at the end of the internship period. Its not the usual internship where all you do is answer phones, get coffee and do other things for no pay. I'd actually be an employee at the agency and get paid during the internship.
