Asked to give back name tag?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Feb 01, 2018 9:39 pm

I was at a 1L reception yesterday for a firm that I am very interested in for OCI. Because of a conflict, I had to leave 30 minutes after getting there. As I was leaving, the recruitment coordinator stopped me and asked if they could have my name tag back. Bad sign? Are they tracking people who leave early? Thanks

No. People recycle name tags.

don't listen to these fools, you've absolutely ruined your career. by now i'm sure the firm has alerted every bar association in the country about your massive, massive mistake. 30 minutes early?! disgusting

I was only asked to give back my name tag at one recruiting event. Luckily, that firm didn't have an office in the market I'm in now, and word didn't travel to my market until I was working for a good 6 months, so I was able to make some money before I got fired.

It is relatively common at lawyer events for someone to collect name tags of people who leave so you are not walking around in public wearing a name tag.

OP -

Congrats on having your nametag placed on the firm's Wall of Shame
