Screening Interview with Managing Partner

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Aug 24, 2010 7:46 pm

I got a callback. Does this bode well for my chances -- i.e., will the hiring committee take the screener's apparently favorable impression of me somewhat more seriously?

What do you think? Yes, of course.

No, of course not. The managing partner's opinion will be treated exactly the same as a first year associate's would be. Don't get your hopes up.

Obviously it's not like a callback after a screener with an associate. I'm trying to determine what sort of difference this makes. But thanks for your considered opinions!
