I went for a job interview yesterday & I feel that it went really well.  The interviewer seemed to really like me & she stated that she was rather impressed with my past experience & that she would be recommending me to her supervisor for a second interview.

I really want this job & I want to make sure I have left an impression so after any more interviews they do I'm not forgotten IYKWIM.  I was thinking that maybe I could send the interviewer an email thanking them for the oppurtunity to meet with them & hoping that I am given the chance to discuss my suitablility for the job again.

WDYT though?  Is that too forward or pestering? The interviewer told me that she would be in contact with me tomorrow as to whether I have made it to a second interview but I don't want to miss the chance of getting this job.

I want them to know how keen I am (although I certainly expressed it in the interview) but I don't want to appear desperate either.

Perhaps I should just leave it???

If they said they will be in contact with you tomorrow, then I'd wait.  If they don't make contact tomorrow then I'd send them a quick email (after the day has passed, maybe the next morning) or give them a quick call the morning after tomorrow.

But given they said they would be in contact so soon, I think it's best to wait.  If they said 'next week' or similar then I think it's more appropriate.

  yeah I'm thinking that too, thanks for the advice though.

I think you should always follow up an interview with a quick "thank you for your time" email.

I find nothing wrong with a thankyou email. It is not pestering, asking for anything and it surely leaves a positive impression.

If the interview went horribly then I would be more reluctant!

I think you should follow up with thanks. There are so many timewasters in the interviewing process now that you want to stand out and prove you are keen.

Agreed. I always google "email after job interview" or something along those lines and adapt one of the examples. It's a polite thing to do.
