Post Call-Back: How are you notified?
« on: September 18, 2007, 04:16:58 PM »
So, I had my first call back last Monday and they told me that the hiring committee meets on Mondays (just not last monday) so I would know by this Friday.

No phone call = no offer, right?

Do they call to make an offer?  I got a call back offer in the mail, so is it crazy to think that maybe...just maybe...there will be an offer in the mail?  Or, should I just come to terms and realize that the letter in the mail is just a ding?

hey, as far as i have seen, its almost completely mailed offers.  I have a friend who got a mailed callback as well, so maybe it varies for offers.  I got my rejections by mail already though...

Last year, I mostly got a phone call extending me the offer, with an offer letter to follow in the mail.  Then again, I got no callback offers via snailmail at all, and don't know of anyone else who did last year. This seems to be more common this year, so maybe firms are doing things differently.

All of mine have come by phone. Usually from the alumni from your school who is recruiting you. So there may always be teh possibility that the alumni is the slower link and hasn't gotten around to calling you. I had a couple of people congratulate me via email a couple of days before I heard from the partner, so it can happen. But to be honest, I'd try not to get my hopes up. If you're really nervous, just call the recruiting coordinator and follow up.

How long after an interview should one generally follow-up?

all of my callbacks (except 1) and offers were extended through phone.  I received one callback and 2 offers on the spot.

My offer was initially communicated by phone, with a formal letter to follow by mail.

okay so I had received a couple offers over the phone.  I had a callback with a firm almost 3 weeks ago and heard nothing. today I open my mailbox to find a small envelope from that firm in the mail. I figure its a rejection and almost threw it away without openining it.  OPened it and it turned out to be an offer!  I kind of laughed afterwards that they would put the offer in such a skinny little envelope.  The message was short as well. 

open all your mail.  i've gotten a couple callbacks via snail mail too.
