I had an interview in mid December and forgot to send a thank you before the holidays. Is it better to send one late and draw attention to my lack of attention to detail, or just let it go?

I'd send it late. I think people are fairly understanding about the holidays being a hectic time, and most reasonable people wouldn't hold it against you too much. I think it's better than not sending it at all.

Good question. I tend to lean towards not sending it at all instead of calling attention to it...but I'm not sure. I'd be interested in seeing what others have to say.

Chances are your interviewer has already submitted the interview report, and even if not, there is little likelihood that an email from you at this point will change the feedback submitted to ad com. I think out of basic courtesy, I would follow the principle of better late than never.

Probably change the phrasing of the card more towards a thank you and happy new year! this way it won't seem so dated

Good Call! Something to the effect of:

Dear XYZ,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for taking the time to interview me as part of my application to ABC. It was great to learn more about blah blah blah. Wish you a very happy new year and a great 2011!

Regards,
MC

Agreed. I had a company that I wasn't planning to recruit with, but then decided maybe I wanted to and just used something in the news that we'd talked about to reconnect. The person that posted that they've already turned in the feedback thing is right...I wouldn't say sorry I'm late or anything like that, just play it cool.
