Struck out?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 22, 2016 5:53 pm

I had 6 interviews last week (first week of callbacks). I have heard from none of the firms. They are from the Bay Area (mostly) and Los Angeles. Am I a really bad interviewer or something? Should I have heard something from at least one of them by now?

Just wanted to say I'm in the same boat, 6 CBs split between NorCal and SoCal last week and haven't heard anything. Hopefully this means they are just slow

Mass mail like crazy. Consider different regions in your mass mailing.

To add another Bay Area data point, I had 3 CBs last week. 1 offer, 2 have been silent.

(Actually, should I do anything at this point to "update" the 2 other CB firms? Obviously I have several weeks due to NALP and the offer won't expire soon, but what is protocol here? Do firms want to know of offers elsewhere? I hate the idea of sitting on offers.)

Congratulations. Are you planning on notifying the other firms that haven't told you yet that you have an offer in hand?

I am going to wait until next week. Most firm indicated that I would find out this week regardless.

ETA: only doing this because my pre-oci offers are expiring soonish.

You don't want to tell a firm you have an offer in hand the day after you get the offer. They are just going to ask when you need to decide by, and if the deadline is three weeks from now, it's not going to have any effect aside from making you seem impatient.

The correct answer is it was necessary two months ago. Conventional but often ignored wisdom is to leave nothing to chance and mass mail everywhere pre-oci. But yes, you should be mailing now if you haven't already. Why wouldn't you? There is no downside and only upside, other than the time it takes out of your summer.

I think most firms take a week or so to extend offers. If you interviewed all of last week, it means that it hasn't even been a full week yet for most of these firms. Calm down.

Trying. Hard when most everyone you know has gotten at least 1 (some much more than 1) offer in hand. :cry:

Same boat. Did 3 CBs last week, and radio silence since then.

Is sf market still giving out offers? Like are firms waiting around for people to accept/reject? Does movement tend to happen at a particular time?
