    An informal thank you on a note card does not use a business format.
    Just be sure that this (informal thank you) is how you want to thank this person for the interview.

    However, the question was about a formal thank you.

    It is unusual to send a thank you note for an interview - is this acknowledging that you have been granted an interview or thanking someone for interviewing you?

    If it is a formal thank you, it should have sender's address top right, recipient's address to left above the salutation.

    I am not sure that this placement is universal throughout the English-speaking world. I receive many business letters and they all tend to have both sender and recipient address blocks on the left.

    I provide advice in this matter from my own professional background and training. If others choose to advise differently, that is fine. The questioner can select which suits them.

    I thought the question was whether there needed to be recipient / sender address on a Note card thank-you.

    "Note card," to me, means a small, simple, fold-over card in a note-card size envelope. Very informal.

    Which is one reason for asking the poster to clarify what is meant by "thank you for an interview".
