Follow up thank you email after interview

I had a Noc interview yesturday and I think it went really well, there was only 1 question I wasn't really able to answer, san vs nas mainly b/c i don't work in a noc environment yet. after the email i met w/ HR to discuss benefts ect, he said he had 1 more phone and 1 more in person interview i think today

Anyways, I wanted to send a personal email to my interviewer. He did not give out his email, but based on the recruiters email I can probably guess what it is. My question is this, should i try and send it directly to him (at the end explain how and why) or should i just send it to the recruiter and ask to forward it to the supervisor who i interviewed with?

Thanks

    I would send it to the recruiter and kindly ask them to forward it to your interviewer. If he didn't give his e-mail out to you, or a business card or something.. I wouldn't e-mail him.

    I agree with NavyIT--let the recruiter forward the thank you email to the interviewer.

    I always recommend you reference something from the interview when you do it. It shows you paid attention and have some genuine interest.

    Sent an email to the recruiter, I got a call back asking to do a phone interview on Monday w/ the director of IT of operations...

    anything I should expect? i wasn't expecting a second interview as i don't recall him mentioning it in the primary interview

    If it's with the director then probably won't be too technical. Usually at that point it's a pretty good chance you're one of their final choices. They obviously liked you if they asked you back for another interview so just do more of the same.

    Good luck!

    Hopefully, in person wasn't too technical either i'm gonna be extremely nervous as this is going to pave my way into networking!
