Double Interviewing with Same Firm within 10 days

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 25, 2012 5:08 pm

I bid and received an interview with Firm X during our OCI, but between bidding and receiving the results, I was able to guarantee and schedule an interview with the same firm a couple days later. So now I have an interview with them twice within 10 days.

I emailed my school and they said it's usually find to interview twice, but if you don't get a callback from the first screener, the second screener has a low chance of getting you a callback.

Should I cancel?

If its a couple of days later, don't cancel.

Is it the same office? I've never heard of anyone doing two screeners for the same office. I would call the recruiting coordinator and make sure it's not a mistake

Your situation is a bit different (maybe). But this is from the other thread:

bumping this to see if anyone knows or wants to speculate.

Is the job fair reputable? Does the firm actually hire people from the fair? I would say that interviewing earlier is always better, as then you skip the OCI rush and get considered before your classmates. On the other hand, if the fair is not particularly well run and the firm does not tend to hire people during the fair, maybe it's better to wait so you don't get forgotten about after the fair. My two cents.

kinda the same position. interviewing with a firm at a fair designated as Firmwide. also interviewing with the firm through OCI for a specific city. when interviewing Firmwide, he I express interest in a city different from the one that I'm interviewing with later?
