WHEN TO SCHEDULE CALL BACK

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 16, 2013 4:16 pm

I just received an email at 4:00 inviting me for a call back. Is there any advantage to scheduling a call back earlier than later? Do they send offers on a rolling basis, and will I lose my chances if I wait too long? Ideally I want to have as much time to prepare as possible before going. Would it be too late to try and schedule it for next week (the week of the 26th)? Would it make me look bad? Do I have to schedule it for the upcoming week? Also, do I have to call them to schedule it today, or would it be okay to wait until monday (since they emailed me at 4:00pm anyway). I thought maybe if I wait until monday to call them, it would buy me more time. But if that would look bad I'll just call today.

Did this really require a new thread?

Scheduling ASAP. Offers are rolling. Don't screw yourself over.
