Interview Question

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 06, 2011 3:41 pm

I go to a school on the other side of the country from one of my target markets. After bombing that market over the last few weeks with my materials, I recently followed up to let the firms know that I will be in town for a few days at the end of July. A couple of firms left messages today saying that they could interview me on such and such dates.

Here is my question: are these interviews going to be more like a 30 minute screener or a half day callback? Obviously I can ask the firm recruiter, but I wanted to see if there is a consensus first to avoid sounding like a dumbass. Especially interested in input from people who obtained interviews from mailers in the past.

Ask the recruiter when to show up and how long the interview is supposed to last. If she says thirty minutes, it's a screener. If she says a few hours, it's a callback.
