Visiting multiple offices for call back.

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 09, 2013 9:58 pm

I recently received a call back interview at a V50 firm. I had mentioned during the initial interview that I was interested in three of the offices (Atlanta, NY, and DC). The recruiter, who called me about the call back interview, gave me the option of visiting all three offices or just choosing one. The firm would pay for travel costs either way.

Should I choose just one office or go to all three? Would my odds of getting an offer increase if I visit all three or would it not matter?

I definitely like the firm and would most likely accept an offer from the firm if given one. However, if visiting all three offices wouldn't increase my odds of receiving an offer, I'd rather not waste the firm's money nor deal with the hassle of traveling.

Thanks.

I had something similar. I offered to visit the office in my vicinity, and video conference the other office from there

Why not go to two?

agreed. i don't think firms have a problem with you visiting 2 offices. but 3, IMO, might send a signal that you don't know or care about what/where you'll end up

Any chance this increases your "odds" of getting hired by visiting multiple locations?
