Callback Thank You Notes??

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 21, 2009 10:04 pm

Should I send one general thank you letter to the firm after a callback or to each individual lawyer I met during the callback? Which is more commonplace?

I will - especially this year with limited call-backs.

Wait, you will what? Send to each separate interviewer during the callback or just one general letter to the firm?

Quick question about this... what if you are located accross the country and it would probably take a few days to a week for it to arrive? Should I maybe bring them with me and send them out while still out on the west coast before my flight back to the east coast? Or just live with the delay? Or email? :)

Sort of off topic, but for each call-back I got, I sent everyone I met (recruiting people, associates, partners, pets) a thank you/look forward to seeing you letter.

With men, sure... but what if I am interviewed by one of those rumored female attorneys? I don't think she'll appreciate my charm :)

I guess "whatever it takes" does have its limitations when it comes to employment.

I'll make sure to check back in with questions if the legal market worsens, though.
