Bring 4 copies of everything to call back??

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Oct 04, 2009 10:00 pm

So I have a call back interview tomorrow and I'm going to be meeting with 4 interviewers separately. I provided the firm with a copy of my resume & transcript when I initially applied. Then, at the first interview I gave them another copy of my resume and transcript in addition to my references and writing sample. The firm hasn't asked for anything more. Am I supposed to bring 4 copies of each of those things with me tomorrow?? It seems like a little much, but I don't want something this stupid to decrease my chances of getting hired.

Just bring everything just in case. That's what I did. Occasionally, I'd have a busy partner/assoc. who couldn't find the resume, was looking at the wrong thing, etc. Helpful in that situation if you can just pull it out and hand it to them.

I also brought writing sample, transcript, etc. but tended to bring fewer copies of those, esp. writing sample.

In the long run, can't really hurt, right? What's a few extra pieces of paper going to hurt? (Unless it's going to stress you out to get the extra copies right now or something, in which case, probably just resume copies will do).

agreed. I didn't actually have to give anyone a copy of anything at my callbacks but it can't hurt to have copies of your resume just in case (and maybe one copy of a writing sample and transcript - those are things that can easily be emailed if they really need to see them - doubtful they'd take the time to look through a writing sample during a 30 min interview - but I suppose you never know)

Definitely bring copies. I did this and ended up having to give copies of my resume and transcript out twice, once to a random associate who had been assigned to interview me at the last minute and once to a partner who I guess was very busy and managed to lose my resume.

Sure, just in case. You'll be carrying some sort of folder anyway, right? Does it really matter whether there are 2 or 8 pages in there?
