Maybe:
Send follow up emails/emails of continued interest to the recruiting coordinators at firms you interviewed with last week that did not ding you.


At what point is this acceptable? Silence from a lot of firms from last week.

When posting a ding or cb... include the god damn CITY and by email/mail/phone. It'd make it a lot easier for everyone. Thanks in advance, but seriously please do this

(That is, I was told the same and am assuming I've been dinged.)


^The +1 was me. I got an email CB from FF a couple of hours ago. So, the 2nd round of CB invites has started?

Talked to Career Services today, apparently silence can mean two things, (1) you're on the waitlist, or (2) it's a firm that waits until their callbacks have begun or even ended before they ding everyone at once.

Are follow up emails acceptable a week later even if you sent a thank you email the day after the interview (and still no ding)? Don't want to aggravate the office.

I think last year the general consensus was if you don't have a meaningful update (like another offer you have that is going to expire soon), its not really worth following up.

But I'll caveat that by saying if you've already done the callback, the HR person probably has zero input one way or the other on your offer at that stage in the game, so there might not be any downside.
