Do firms call your references after the CB?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Aug 31, 2011 2:03 am

I brought in my reference list to every screener I had at OCI. I just finished a few CBs and was wondering if the firms call your references if they're interested in you. I figured my references would give me a heads up if they get a call.... maybe indicating I was on an offer track.

I happened to run into one of my references on Friday and he cryptically said something about expecting good news... Yesterday I got an offer from a great firm FWIW.
