Checking Back After Interview

Postby Law Student 2848 » Thu Jan 30, 2014 11:16 am

I had a call-back interview at a large firm, but was not given any indication when I could expect to hear back from them. How long should I wait until I reach out to their recruiting coordinator to ask when I might be hearing back from them?

Wait a month. These things take time. Six days is nothing.

The proper time to ask this question of the recruiting coordinator is at the time you're in the office for your CB or > 3 weeks later. Anything in between is needy.

3 weeks to a month? Why does it take so long for the firm to make a decision?

And even if they're not, they are actually occupied with quite a lot of things other than hiring people.
