Mass Mail Radio Silence

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Sep 08, 2012 12:10 am

OCI at MVP did not work out, sent 200 or so resume to firms and I have yet to hear back. I understand midsize firms might take awhile to go over resumes but is it usual to get some sort of confirmation?

Of the firms I mass mailed, I never once received an e-mail confirming receipt of my materials. The only time I ever heard from the firms were when they decided they were rejecting me or extending me an invitation for a callback. Good luck and stay positive!

Earlier than now I'm guessing...I think if we all banded together we could form our own national law firm you with me?

Turnaround time was 2-3 weeks for me. Keep in mind this was pre-OCI (so I don't know if turnaround time changes based on when mass mailing is done).

OP, tell us GPA and geographic area. Are you mailing firms that are too small? If GPA is ok, you still have a chance at bigger firms. You should not be in complete radio silence... so tell us more.
