Advice needed

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 19, 2017 5:29 pm

I CB'd in this NY based firm yesterday. Before we began, the recruiting coordinator met me and said, "Please let me know if you would like to meet any other attorneys besides the ones who are interviewing you today and I'll arrange some time for you to meet with them." She also told me that the practice group chair enjoyed meeting me during the screener interview (she offered me CB at the end of the interview) and the attorneys I met in the hospitality suite also spoke favorably about me (the screener mentioned that as well).

I enjoyed the interviewing there and it is one of my top choices. Should I take up on her offer and tell her that I would enjoy meeting some of the other attorneys to show my interest or was it just a standard recruiting coordinator line?

P.S. None of my other CBs said this, so I'm a little confused.

As a rule of thumb, always say yes to offers like this. This doesn't sound like a situation where you will be dinged because you didn't take them up on the offer, but, especially if this is one of your top choices, it certainly can't hurt to show interest by asking to meet with more people.

Thank you. I told the coordinator, I would definitely like that, however, I didn't mention any names as I was not ready for that particular question and didn't remember the names of other attorneys in that group. :)
