Congrats!

Which mid-sized market if you don't mind me asking? (East/Midwest/South/Southwest/West). Also, were your other CB's same market?


Southwest. All of my other CB's have been in CA, where I go to school. This firm randomly interviewed at my school, and i guess they liked me.

Any movement happening? Things seem to have slowed down quite a bit - expected, but depressing.

Rejection letters from on-hold CBs and emails from mass-mailing started flooding in yesterday (NY). I guess that's movement!

Hey, any place that's full probably pulled a few candidates away from others.

So... 3 CB's, 1 ding, 2 silence. One firm told me via email (upon my inquiry) that they would make final decisions the first week in Oct. What are the chances the offer could come on a Thur. or Fri.? Feeling pretty scared...

Good luck! I'm waiting on my last CB from two weeks ago and the recruiting committee was supposed to meet sometime this week. No news yet, can't think about anything else.

Hey guys, just wanted you to know stuff is still happening. Barnes & Thornburg (Chi office) just asked me for a callback. I'm going to decline (I jumped off this boat awhile back) but thought it might be encouraging to know that some firms are moving slowly, still. Don't lose hope!

+1, got an offer from a firm from a callback over three weeks ago. Friend had a similar experience this week with a different firm. First round of offers are running up against their 4 week deadline and firms are starting to replace the ones that turned them down with fresh offers. Keep optimistic, and follow up with firms.

Keep your head up. You had 3 test runs and you're a better CB interviewer now than you were then. These last 2 firms don't know about your dings- they think you're great which is why they gave you CBs to begin with. Carpe Diem.

Also, it's not the end of the world- there are other options. Local firms in your area probably don't start hiring in earnest until winter/even spring.

+1 as well. Got an offer from a firm I interviewed with weeks and weeks ago that I had written off.

Jumping ship people...offer in hand. Just wanted to inject some positive information here. I know it was pretty dark for me these past few weeks. Just keep your heads up because even today offers are still going out.

Best of luck.

Firm has a smaller class size and only had a few spots left, so I'd prefer to not to say.
