Haven't heard from my summer employer

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jan 17, 2012 11:07 am

The last contact I had with my employer was in october when I accepted their offer and signed some papers. Should I keep in touch with them or just wait until they contact me? If I should email them, what should I say?

Haven't you guys ever heard of the "cold retracted offer"?

Just kidding- cool your heels; there's nothing to say. They hired you a full 9 months early for a 10 week position.

This is normal. Late jan / early feb is common to hear from firms. For smaller orgs or judges you might literally never hear and just have to confirm a time to show up.

Yup. Haven't heard from my NYC biglaw firm, neither have the couple others I've asked about it.
