A partner here just used the term "tar baby" in the hallway loud enough to be heard 50 feet away.

Send partner one-line email: "#unacceptable #blacklivesmatter #microaggression"

You'll feel better, the partner will be confused to the point that he won't hold anything against you, and you can both go about your day.

Preface: at a satelite office. Didn't get a no-offer, but got a "can't decide now based on business. Stay on as school year clerk & hope.: Ugh.

They'll at least pay you while you keep working during the year, right? Hope they come through for you.

Thank's all. I'm hoping for greener pastures sometime this year anyway.

Yea I think it's a huge deal that they are still paying him as clerk. It clears up any "is this just a no offer" worries. So it sucks but no stigma.


Yeah. It can go on the resume (though not as obviously as a full time offer) as just continued employment. Hopefully someone gives a shit . . .

Yeah not such a bad deal. Pocket some money until about March when you let them know you've accepted a full time offer elsewhere.

Full time hiring is always a bitch, so you have my sympathy, but I'd be hopeful if I were you. Are you doing corp work or lit.


Lit, but I'd bite at the opportunity to do Corp.

Sorry dude. For what it's worth, I think it's clear they like you--otherwise, they wouldn't have offered you the option of continuing to work for pay during the school year.

I know that you were already thinking about looking elsewhere for employment. But if your other options don't pan out, I honestly think you have reason to be optimistic about your future at your summer firm. Good luck.

Related Sidenote: Do firms actually call you if you get no offered, or just send a letter? I'm curious... I mean, if it happens to me, then the universe has a sick and twisted sense of humor (lol), but I've never seen anyone state how they got no offered. I figured a call would be awkward, but idk.

I know at least one person who got a phone call.

I can't speak to summer return offers or associate offers, but when my firm offered me my SA position, it was an email followed by the formal offer letter.

i'd venture a guess that DJ doesnt care about how people got offers to summer

Have raises ever been announced at these end of summer benefits meetings? I know the original 160 movement came in January, but it seems the biggest recruiting advantage would be to announce it right before oci...

I think it's time for hype.
