Mass-Mailing

Postby bilboteabaggins » Mon Aug 01, 2011 10:37 pm

I've already mass-mailed most of the firms from the region where I currently go to school. However, I was wondering about the logistics of mass-mailing and subsequently interviewing with firms in other areas of the country where I am not currently located. Do they do phone interviews or skip the screening stage and do call-backs? Do you fly out on your own dime and just hope to god you land something? Should I just not apply to these firms?

Thanks.

I have been mass mailing firms on the other side of the country and have had little luck so far. I have heard from others that firms would be willing to do phone or video interviews but I haven't had any willing to do this so far. The firms that have responded have all expected me to fly out on my own dime for a screener.

From alums I have contacted in the area, they all got jobs in this market by paying for their own flights.

I have had phone interviews, and I have had direct call backs. Some firms have expected me to just show up somehow for a screening interview, but I haven't done that.

This was last year.

does anyone know from past experiences if callbacks set up through mass mailing yield the same amount of offers?

I just asked the recruiting lady when I called to schedule the CB. My school and stats are really good, but from the way she answered it seemed like it was standard.

Yeah, I had the same experience with Cahill. Out of curiosity, how did they contact you initially?

I'll be in NYC anyway but it's good to know they'll do that.

I got an e-mail from a partner, which gave me the recruiting contact's numbers and mentioned a "round of interviews"

I think this is pretty standard for them, I wonder how many of these pre-OCI callbacks they are doing. It will be interesting to hear if anyone gets an early offer.

Seems like a bunch if TLS is any indication. Then again, it could be the same handful of us posting multiple times in different threads. Cahill doesn't do OCI at many schools, so it's not really surprising that they're doing these interviews.

Did you just initially cold-mail Cahill? Their site doesn't seem to have a summer recruiting contact.

I used the online application thing, so I guess it doesn't matter.

People with Cahill interviews- do they reimburse for cab/meal expenses as well? I never asked and now I don't really know if I should.

Well, I gather they do since it's included on the form.
