I want to share my recent out of the norm experience with some of you guys who are out there still waiting to hear back from banks.
About two weeks prior to this past holiday I interviewed for an analyst position at an IB (think, , Piper Jaffary). After my final interview I did the routine follow up with HR and sent thank you emails to all 11 of the people I interviewed with. A week flew by while I anxiously waited for a call or email from anyone at the bank.. nothing. At the start of the second week without a single response,
I followed up again with the HR rep. Another week flew by and.. nothing. At this point, I figured I did not get the job and I began doing what anyone else in my situation would do, start the process all over again by applying to more banks. Yesterday, more than three weeks later, I get a call after work from the HR rep telling me that I got the job.
Moral of this short story - if you are still waiting to hear back and a more than a week has gone by .. please don't sweat it.
Good luck to those currently looking for jobs.
