Talking about other callbacks?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:26 pm

When I'm at a callback, and a partner/associate interviewing me asks about where I am in the interview process, etc., should I be talking about other screeners/general OCI, should I name other firms I have CB's with, or what?

It's not something you should aim to bring up on your own, but it's fine to discuss if they ask, especially if it's strategic.

Ex: If you're interviewing for corporate in NYC with V10ish firms, and they ask about who else you're interviewing with / where else you're considering, mentioning that you're seriously considering offers from (other V10 firms) could provide very fruitful discussion topics.

I had partners from one firm give me good info about other firms, especially ones they do a lot of business with (there are two big firms on every big deal and most litigation...).
