Last time, we talked about the basics of OCI, how to bid, and what to expect in the initial interview. Today, we’re discussing the next step in the process – callback interviews.


Topics discussed include:

  • The basics - what's a callback interview, and how is it different from the initial on-campus interview?
  • What are firms looking for in a callback?
  • Advice on scheduling interviews and handling travel arrangements (including what you can expect the firm to pay for)
  • What to wear for your callbacks and what to bring with you
  • Thank you notes
  • What you should be paying attention to on your callbacks, to figure out if a firm is a good fit for you
  • Questions to ask (and not to ask) at a callback
  • What to do if you strike out at OCI and need to find a job a different way

If you're doing callbacks, this is a must-listen episode! We'll tell you all the stuff that no one else will.
