How do we give firms an updated resume? I imagine they'd want to have an updated copy before the interview and the one that I initially used is out-of-date.

Need some help. I bid one firm very high but was not invited to a screener nor alternate. Then I bid the firm at my school's oci and was able to secure an interview. Today, I just found out that I got a slot with the firm through the lottery process. Should I email the firm canceling the interview at the job fair to avoid double interview?

Does anyone know how to cancel interviews after you have already accepted pre-select spots?

I was under the impression from previous posts that the system would not let you have more than 10 interviews, but that does not appear to be the case, and I am overscheduled.

Anyone familiar with the cb timeline?

Anon above. Participated in the conference, went to dinner with friends once the conference was over and a few people at dinner got callbacks from Simpson within two minutes of each other. All of us are HYSCCN.

Conference = BADCF. My mistake. We all interviewed at the *career fair*, and we all went to dinner and at around 7PM several of us received calls from Simpson extending callbacks.

Two had Kirsten, one had Atif. Another person at our table who had Atif didn’t get a phone call, but I don’t assume that’s indicative of anything.

So nobody heard back from OMM or Cooley? Both firms released callbacks on Mondays in 2016 and 2017.
