How long to wait to set up call back?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 14, 2009 4:10 pm

Just got a callback from 2 firms. One is one of my top choices and the other is definitely at the lower end of my list. My top choice firm told me they're going to contact me again soon with details on how to set up the callback. The non-top-choice firm gave me a # to call to set up the call back.

Should I wait on calling my non-top-choice firm until I hear back from the other firm or should I just call immediately to set it up?

Also, approximately how soon does the call back interview occur on average from when you call to set it up? Of course this will depend on how schedules of both parties look, but roughly what does the time frame look for a quickly scheduled call back (3 days later?) as compared to a call back that you want to schedule after your priority call backs (2 weeks later?)?

This. If you're still reading this instead of scheduling your callback, then it's already too late.
