Responses to thank yous are relatively rare, and when I have gotten them I've sometimes gotten the job and sometimes not gotten the job.

I would say CEOs are an exception due to reporting lines. You shouldn't be doing your girlfriend's performance review and paying her, imo. At that point you should be like hey, if this is moving...
