An associate from a bulge bracket firm referred for for an IBD internship and wrote a recommendation for me. I was wondering if I should also send her a box of chocolate along with a thank you note? Would that be appropriate? She has been like a mentor to me.

    Not appropriate particularly if you are going to be working with this person.

    Now if it's a different firm a hand written thank you letter will be appreciated. In addition, when you finish your stint you can feel free to give thank you gifts, in that case be sure to include everyone or else you'll be making others feel like you didn't like them.

    Chocolates are definitely overboard, seems like you really took a liking to this person so simply show gratitude when the timing is right.
