Left me hanging for summer associate CB

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Apr 14, 2015 11:19 am

1L interviewing for a summer summer associate spot. Had screener 2 weeks ago.

Got a callback offer from Firm's HR person on Friday noon. Gave my availabilities... but now no response. Followed up yesterday (Monday) via email. No word.

Obviously don't want to bother the guy, but not sure what to do, especially since finals are coming.

Wait? Call the guy? Another email?

I would appreciate any/all feedback.

Wait til the end of the week and then maybe send a follow-up email.

1L summers aren't the mad 2L SA competitive hire-fest - they likely are busy with other things and will get back to you. If they gave you a CB they'll honor it; doesn't mean they'll hire you, but they will at least humor you.

OP here. Thanks.

Yeah I don't acutally think I have very good chances of being hired because looking at NALP, theres usually on one 1L per summer but this is my first CB ever so I'm interested in getting that experience. (Obviously if I get the offer that would be awesome too).

Yeah the HR person prolly just forwarded your availability around the group and it's gonna take a couple days to hear back from anyone when your interview is. Multiple times I've gotten a callback on a Friday, given my availability immediately and not heard anything back until about a week later.

Ah thanks. That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the sharing the personal anecdotes too. Puts my mind at ease haha.
