I don't totally follow. at the schools at which I interview I meet with the students directly? for mass-mail i think recruiting office. but an associate putting in a strong word for you always helps
I've read the entire thread and I'm pretty sure this is the closest you've come to answering my question.
Our bids were due yesterday at Michigan. After the end of the bidding period, it's impossible to change anything about your bids, including the resume attached to the bid. My bids used the wrong resume, the one I used for my 1L job search, which doesn't have my current summer job and looks pretty terrible all around. I already talked to OCS and they said they can't change the resume as it's already been sent on to firms.
OCS suggested I get in touch with the recruiting contact at all the firms I get screeners with and ask them to distribute a copy of the corrected resume to the person who will be interviewing me. I'm planning to do this. I'll also be bringing extra copies of my resume to each interview just in case.
After reading your answer quoted above, it seems like nobody other than my actual interviewer will read my resume before my interview. Is that correct? Do you normally read a person's resume before they walk in the door? Do you think whether you do or don't read the resume beforehand is normal for interviewers? If you were to be accidentally provided with a clearly out-of-date resume (e.g. refers to March 2013 in future tense) would you assume it was the applicant's fault and he has poor attention to detail?
