Second Look Etiquette

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Sep 01, 2013 11:41 am

If you are interested in visiting a firm post-offer to have a second look and to meet more associates, but you go to school a flight away, is it expected generally that you will pay for the flight and related expenses?

From my experience, yes.

When I did it from a plane ride away, the firm paid for everything callback style.

Every time I've heard about it, the firm had paid. Just ask them and see what their policy is.

So far I have had different firms tell me straight up either that 1) they would be more than happy to pay for all of my travel/lodging etc., or 2) that if I was already in town they would be happy to schedule the second look. Just ask the recruiting coordinator.

Is this a serious question?

I would try to match the firm's typical dress (I.e. biz casual if that's the usual)

I had firms either pay or offer to pay for second looks.

Yes. I'm sorry for my ignorance I just wanted to confirm if my suspicion was right or wrong.
