Any firms that mail callback invitations?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 18, 2013 12:20 pm

Has anyone heard of firms that send callback invites through regular mail? I'm out of town this week and was wondering if I should be concerned about missing a letter.

I know usually it's just bad news through the mail and good news over phone or email, but after getting a post-callback ding via phone call and having a different firm tell me they would contact me by mail (maybe I was already dinged?), I realized there's some firms that don't stick to the typical contact methods.

I was offered an on-the-spot callback, but also told that if I lost the card that the interviewer gave me, it would be okay, since they'll also mail out the information on scheduling a CB.

Fitzpatrick, Cella mailed callbacks in the past, but I'm not sure if they still do.

I've heard of it. Open your mail.

Hughes Hubbard (at least for me) called me to say they wanted me to come to a callback but didn't give me the information about how to schedule it over the phone. I got a letter a few days later with the recruiting office's phone number.

Day Pitney. Thought the letter was a ding, but it was an invitation to do a callback.

crap I have my old address on my resume because I don't have a new address yet (still looking for a place). Should I contact firms to let them know there's a change of address, and just give my parents address or something?

They emailed me. Almost got a heart attack thinking it was a rejection.

If you can't get mail at your old address, yes. I've received a few letters from firms that didn't convey the information any other way. Of course, I wouldn't update twice. Maybe update now to your parents and have your parents give you any mail after you move.
