Networking Q

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 03, 2013 8:55 pm

I've read various threads on hustling/networking. I'm participating in a diversity job fair and OCI next month. I'm thinking it would be better to reach out to my school alumni at these firms before the interviews for informational phone calls/ coffee meetings. Any reason why I should wait until after the interviews?

Definitely do it before they fill their class. I was able to snag an offer from a DC firm that otherwise would not have considered me by meeting with a couple of partners before OCI season. Firms know how many summers they want. If they get to that number before they meet you you will likely be out of luck.

Thanks guys. Will continue the email grind. Sucks that I'm getting so many no-responses. Guess that's common, though.
