I recently had a screening interview that went extremely well. The interviewer flat out said at the end of the interview, "I think you would be a great fit for this firm. I would like to have you called back to meet some of our partners and other associates." He then said the firm has a very large hiring committee and that they would be meeting in the next week or so to discuss callback candidates, so I should be hearing something very soon.I'm a little confused...was I called back or not? Does the interviewer have the power to make that call on his own? I sent the thank-you in the mail that afternoon. How long should I wait until I give him a call to see where the process is at?I know this may sound like a common sense question, but I was just curious if anyone else has been in a similar situation. If so, what was the result?Thanks!
Don't read into a statement like this and get your hopes up. Some interviewers seem to want to be liked, so they tell this to everyone. This happened to me in one interview, where the guy said a callback was all but assured, and then I got a rejection letter that was dated *the same day as my screening interview.* This interviewer said the exact same BS to at least 3 other people who interviewed with him, and none of us got callbacks. So until you get a phone call about coming in for a callback, don't bank on anything.
Should i bring one copy of every document(references, resume, writing sample, and cover letter) for each person i will be interviewing with at a callback or one set per firm?
