Post-CB email question

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Sep 13, 2013 10:36 am

I got an email from a firm saying that they are still strongly considering me. How should I respond to this? Of course I want to express my continuing interest, but is there a good way to do this that has worked for other people? I don't have other offers to bring up. I have had other CBs and future ones coming up.

How long ago was the CB?

Bump because I want to respond before the end of the day. Any advice?

You could mention that you hope to have an opportunity to choose the firm and if they need anything else from you, to let you know. You also might say that you have other callbacks coming up, but that x firm is still your top choice (if it is). Don't want to appear desperate.

I wouldn't say you've had other callbacks because they'll assume that to mean you didn't get an offer from those places.

No personal experience. I think I'd just tell them you are happy to hear that and you remain very interested as well.
