Alternate from Pre-Select

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 04, 2011 11:49 pm

If you are an "alternate" at a pre-select school, would you suggest e-mailing either the recruiter at the firm or the interviewer coming on campus, and expressing your eagerness to interview with the firm. Any chance this will help them see you anyway? Preferable to e-mail recruiter or interviewer?

email the interviewer saying that you'd love to speak, that you are still very interested in working for x firm.

I have spoken with a few interviewers who indicated that they are informed by their employer that they are to make time for those who seek it.

How early should we do this? I'm an alternate for 5 firms that I'd love to work for, and currently have 8 other OCI interviews lined up. Should I send the email out on Monday, or wait until we get closed to their OCI interview date (which would be in ~2 weeks).
