I ask, not because I did that great and expect calls right away, but because my number has changed from the original resume to the updated one. Someone else has the old number now. 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.


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?


I did, to all but one, and for the life of me I can't remember which one. Yikes. I walked out before I realized that they never asked me.

I do think it is kind of crazy to merely call about something this important and not follow up on email. What a strange practice.

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.


I'm pretty sure McAndrews would be the one that wouldn't be doing anything 'til Sept. MBHB called me today. Nothing from Marshall yet.

No knowledge about Frommer, but I got a call back from Fitzpatrick last year at the beginning of September. While it might not be a good sign you haven't heard anything, it is by no means the end of the world.

Before you got a callback from them, did you hear anything at all from them? Or was it just interview and then a month later you just got a call for a callback?

Also, did Fitzpatrick take Extend an offer to you?

I didn't hear anything. Also, I don't know if they would or would not have given me an offer, I withdrew before I found out. Had an offer I liked a lot better in DC, so I did the right thing and didn't string them along.

EDIT: I get the feeling the answer would have been no though. I am an electrical engineer, and that just is not their main practice area. Nice group of people though, for an NYC firm.

Some markets are slower than others. Don't worry. I was thinking the same thing yesterday, but got three in 2 hours.

3 cbs and 0 ding, you have every reason to be optimistic...
