SKADDEN callback help

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 11, 2012 2:01 pm

Hey folks. I would like to schedule a call back with Skadden on "Fantastic Friday," but I have another callback that afternoon at 2pm (a few blocks away).

Does anyone with experience know how long a Skadden morning callback lasts? Will I be pushing it to get out by 1:30?

Thanks for any tips :)

They told me it should end around 2 PM.

Are you having lunch? That could cause you to run a little late, depending on where you go. If you are worried, you might want to skip the lunch unless you like Skadden a lot more than the second firm.

I received my list the day before. It may be taking a whole because they have to match schedules and hunt down ppl in your practice areas of choice. Obviously no one is gonna miss a meeting, client call or deadline to interview you, so the pool of ppl is smaller.

Just follow up and see if one is available. I did this and was forwarded later that evening.

When is "super friday" this year? What exactly does it entail? Also, interested in hearing from people who have successfully received offers from Skadden in the past for interviewing insight/advice specific to the firm.

Edit: I am interviewing in NYC, I'm not sure if other offices have "super" days. But if someone could explain the concept of the skadden "super" day, the odds of getting hired if your CB is after that date, etc., I would be very grateful.

Bump. Curious about this as well.

For those of you who have gone through the process (in NY). are resumes and transcripts required during the callback?

They should already have everything but it's a good idea to bring some extra copies just in case. Same goes for pretty much any callback.
