Longest Between Mass Mail and Screener/CB?

Postby sweeteavodka » Mon Aug 04, 2014 2:15 pm

Curious as to how long it's possible to go between sending and actually hearing back with something that isn't a ding. People willing to throw out some anecdotes?

Last year I had no success mass mailing large firms, but last spring I did get an interview with a mid-size firm 3-4 weeks after I initially contacted them and ended up getting an offer. The success rate may be low, but it definitely is worth the time/effort.

I received about 3 responses from mass-mailing with Screeners. I waited between 7-10 days from the date I emailed those firms. Hope that helps

I imagine this depends on when you submitted your application. I mass mailed several firms in mid-July and heard back from one of the firms at the beginning of August.

58 days (email apply until email scheduling a phone screener) another was about 40 days from online submission until scheduling phone screener. Both vault firms 1 v30 1 v100.

Two months. Followed up a couple times, though.

Got a screener 3 and a half weeks after mass mailing. Mid-size firm in a secondary market.

5 mass mail screeners so far. 3 weeks between emailing and them responding has been pretty standard for me.
