Callback to Offer Ratio

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 05, 2013 8:53 pm

What's the most recent word on how likely it is to get an offer if you've gone as far as getting a callback interview?

There are so many variables that go in to getting an offer after a callback that is difficult to assign a raw number to.

Nationwide the rate is about 40% on average. Some firms cattle call, others are basically rubber stamps, but 40% is about right. It's definitely not yours to lose, but it's not a longshot either.

However, bad interviewers do a lot worse than 40% and good interviews do a lot better. So don't count on anything. There is no "safe" number of callbacks.

I have data ranging from approximately 5 offers per 30 callbacks to 5 offers per 5 callbacks, depending on the firm. And they change from year to year even for the same firm. I think a lot of random luck is involved, depends on who they interview and in what order they interview them.
