I think it's a really great sign that the hiring partner reached out to you. Since it was about two weeks ago, the partner probably wanted to see if you're still available in the market, or if you decided to accept another offer elsewhere. Did you reiterate your interest? Do you know when the hiring committee meets?


Well that's nice to hear, I hope you are right. I definitely expressed how much I wanted the job, and spoke briefly about why I was so interested in their particular practice specialty, however I have no idea about the committee's schedule

I see. I wouldn't take the partner's silence as a negative sign. The fact that he took the initiative means the firm is somewhat still interested in you. Just keep your fingers crossed. I'm kind of in the same boat -- supposed to hear back in the next few days. Good luck to you!

Who makes the offer call? And does the caller usually call immediately after the hiring committee makes its decision? Or the next day?

I've had 3 hiring partners and 1 member of the hiring committee.

Three of my offers I knew they called right after the meeting.

Today I got a call from a firm the day after my callback, but I was in the gym and didn't get the message until 8:00... Message from a partner telling me to call the firm back tomorrow. Looks like I'm not sleeping tonight.

edit: Icing on the cake is I'm dinged from all my other callbacks and this firm is/was one of my top choices.

What market?

Deep South, what TLS would consider a tertiary market. I think they may be taking one other person. If they are, then I've got a TLS bro I plan to recommend for the position and I'll post in the "still hiring" thread.

Jumping Ship. Clerk position at a DC firearm regulatory boutique. Part-Time now, Full-Time summer. It's not big law but I like guns and it is going to open numerous doors for me in the DC market.

Off the boat. After about 8 callbacks, top 30% grades at a T30, I got an offer from a secondary market firm. Not stoked about working in the secondary market, but I know I should be happy with something at this point! Keep up hope everyone, keep an eye on symplicity and consider those secondary markets that will help you at least get your foot in the door.

I think you should go with the firm for the spring unless the judge has a reputation for helping interns get good jobs.

Agree with the above poster, with the same caveat. Although EDNY kicks ass (i was there last summer - sweet mob, terrorist, and drug cases), you are in the city and can pretty much do EDNY/SDNY externships anytime. But a judicial externship does not turn into an immediate clerkship. Go with the firm and see if it rolls into something paying for the summer.

TCR. Maybe then you can tell me how derivative suits work.

LOL. It's actually what I'm interested in too.
