Help: Following up with Screener Interviewer

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 18, 2016 1:59 am

I've received email rejections or callback emails from almost all of the firms I interviewed with at OCI. Just recently, I received a callback invitation from one firm that I interviewed with at OCI two weeks ago, and this has given me a little bit of hope with respect to the last firm that I haven't heard from at all.

The outstanding firm is one that I am really really interested in and I figured I should email the recruiter or the partner screener because there is nothing to lose, right?

Does anyone have suggestions for how to phrase this kind of follow up email? I'd start out by saying thanks for considering my candidacy, but where do I take it from there?

TBH it's hard to see how the follow-up will help you. And there is something to lose. You might make a mistake in the email that seems embarrassing, or maybe your screener interviewer is a little unhinged and finds it disqualifyingly annoying or desperate. Because it can't help, and can hurt, I wouldn't bother.

Do you mind sharing which firm got back to you 2 weeks after your screener? There may be hope for us all!
