Got a call early this week telling me I landed an interview. Should I send an email just thanking the interviewing for the chance or will it look like I'm sucking up and desperate?

Definitely unnecessary. I don't even send thank-you notes after the interviews anymore given how fast and structured the process is.

"Sucking up and desperate" is the winner.

It depends, I would send an thank you note if the HR people did any sort of fiddiling with the interview roster to get you in. If this is just a normal interview though, dont worry about it.

Think of it like dating - do you call and thank someone for a date before you get there?

"Hi, I've had so much fund driving over to your place, can we do this again some time?"

It's a smaller shop and I got a call from someone who I didn't really get to build a strong rapport with. It was ~30 seconds and he just asked me when I was free for an interview.

I was hoping it would just help me re-affirm my stance and eagerness to join the firm.

I hope this is subtle trolling at it's finest, but if it's not - don't do it. If you send a pre-interview thank you note, then all throughout the interviewer the guy is going to be thinking "this douchebag thanked me before the interview. ding."

That is if they don't cancel it first.

Wasn't trolling, legitimately confused. But thanks for all the input, I'll hold off on the thank you haha.
