How to withdraw from "decision-to-be-rendered" firms?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Oct 04, 2010 2:22 am

Do you call recruiting or write an email? Also, what if a rejection is on the way via snail mail? ...Should I preface my call with "Maybe I've been rejected, but..."

seriosuly? why do you need to ask about this online? just call the recruiting chick and tell her you are no longer interested. who gives a fuck if they don't like the way you reject them?

Call the recruiter and say "Hi, my name is _____, I interviewed at your firm _ weeks ago. I'm calling to withdraw myself from consideration." "Awwww, I'm sorry to hear that. Which firm did you accept at?" "_____ & _____." "Oh OK, well thanks for letting us know." "Thank you. Bye."

Prefacing with "you may have rejected me already" is stupid. It makes no difference or not whether a rejection letter is on the way.

It is considered a HUGE faux pas to decline a firm that rejected you already. They may just call you and tell you to drop dead but there is a very real possibility that they add you to a biglaw black list and ensure you never work at ANY firm.

Was that really necessary? I've been coming to the forum pretty regularly these days to get updates on firms, and you always seem to post sarcastic comments that doesn't help anyone. People come here to exchange information on a pretty important part of their lives and it would be nice if people like you could be regulated.

His sarcasm was obvious. I think it is people like you who should be banned from this board.

No sh*t the sarcasm was obvious. My point was that it was not necessary.

Grow thicker skin? If you want nothing but positive reenforcement, go hang out with your dog.
