No. 2 CBs already with no emails sent. Either they liked you or they didn't, a 3 line email isn't going to change their minds. This has the thesealocust seal of approval as well, from her callback guide.

Yes, the interviewer called, so it might be an interviewer by interviewer basis.

That does seem promising then. I have not been dinged; nor have I received a callback. Hmmmmm. :/ I am not getting my hopes up though. I am anticipating the ding email.

I can easily see someone at a firm mistakenly calling the old number and leaving me a message there. But my email has remained the same.

Also, I am pretty sure I saw this asian girl get a telephone call back on Friday afternoon.


I have one that did a phone call-back, followed up by an email, but another one only left a voicemail message on Friday and did not follow up with an email.

I am the poster who asked the original question. I've had two CBs so far, one by email, the other by phone (voicemail). The phone-only one really has me worried about the others now. The voicemail of the person who has my old phone number doesn't say his or her name, just the automated "you have reached (555) 555 5555" greeting, so they would have no way to know it's the wrong number. OK I'll stop worrying about this, nothing I can do. My thank you emails did have my new number in the sig.

Not necessarily. Kenyon is the weird firm that gave me my callback by mail last year. Nice guys, but that always struck me as odd.

Is your current phone number on your resume? If not, I would definitely email the recruiter at each firm with your new number. Don't assume someone will notice the phone number in the signature of your email. You don't have to email your interviewer to remind them, they are busy. But make sure the recruiter has your correct information.

The majority of callbacks I received last year were by phone. I'd send updates to the recruiters pronto. Did you give updated copies of your resume to the interviewer?

No and no. I kind of expect the boutiques to move a little more slowly than others, probably be a week or two IMO. Also, either Marshall or McAndrews said they might not have any movement till mid-September - can't remember which it was.
