A firm has sent out some rejections but I didn't get one. Should I be hopeful?

Recruiting directors do not have time to track you down if you never call back, so likely they are not going hate on you for it. You just cost yourself an earlier call back date.


Is it bad to have a late callback rather than earlier?


yeah, if the firm is doing rolling offers then your chances of getting one are smaller the later your callback is.

I think it depends on when you get the callback. if you get a cb and schedule it three weeks later, then your chances aren't as good. but if a firm just gave you a cb now in late sept, I think that means they are seriously considering you as they likely still have spots to fill. imo.

I'd agree with this. Firms don't call back unless they think they would actually hire that person. Waste of money and time otherwise.

I think so. That means they've extended at least some, if not all, of their available offers, but are now waiting to see whether those people will accept/decline. If someone declines, you may be next.

Ahoy Shipmates,

What's a worse feeling, the frantic feeling of hope slipping away as 5:00 approaches and your phone hasn't rung, OR the feeling of dread that festers in the pit of your stomach as you get home to check the mail?

You just about summed up the last two weeks of my life. But to answer your question, they're both equally nauseating.

Much like 2 legs bad, 4 legs good I have mailbox bad, mobile phone good.

Another day of radio silence. Started mass emailing the secondary market this weekend and will finish over the holiday...time to abandon hope.

never thought I would leave this boat. Only got one CB....but it turned into an offer. V50-70.

I know its hard to read all of those who are jumping ship, but you really need to hold out hope because all it takes is one.

Please let this be the case with me, although others have gotten offers from the place according to the internet, so I think I am effed.

how often do you all keep in conversation with a firm after a callback?

Same here (although the firm has been radio silent as far as I know). Not sure for how much longer I can hold out hope.

Same :( I'm waiting on two more firms. It's been almost a month since my callbacks. Recruiters basically told me I won't hear back unless someone declines. FML

What does this mean? I emailed thank you letters (which, according to TLS, is not a good idea but whatever) and never received replies. I didn't expect them to reply... The way I see it, there ain't much room for conversation.

Which firm? If you are uncomfortable saying the name, what vault range?
