Materials to bring to CB

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 26, 2013 7:42 am

On my first CB, I brought all of my application materials with me for each interviewer (resume, transcript, list of references, and writing sample), who already had copies of my resume (only) were surprised to receive them. Should I not bring them on future CBs?

Jumping in -- Some of my CB instructions told me to bring my materials. So far I've brought them but no one's asked for them. Should I have volunteered them?

Good question. At my first callback I brought and volunteered everything, though the associates/partners I met with only had a printout of my resume. The hiring partner spent a lot of time reading my transcript which seemed to signal that she hadn't seen it before...but I'm not sure if she would have ever seen it if I hadn't give it over.

At my next callback I'm only going to offer up my updated resume. My grades are well below median so I want to keep as much attention off of my transcript as possible.

I've never offered anything. Once someone had forgotten to print my resume so they asked for one.

Bring everything even though its unlikely to be needed (transcript, writing sample, list of references and resume).
