I had an interview w/ a, and they asked me if I had a summer offer. I lied and told them yes, but I didn't want to go back for reasons X,Y, and Z. The reason i did this is b/c ive been dinged by everyone i told the truth to. The truth is that the place I interned at (small shop, not in NYC) hired less than 20% and wouldn't give me a reason. I received good reviews. I think it was a combination of the market turmoil and my exit interview, but that looks like a bad excuse in an interview. Anyway, I'm wondering if this would come back to haunt me in a background check, etc. There is another thread like this on the forum, but that guy worked for Goldman and my situation is different. Anyway, I got a couple of interviews left, and if I don't get an offer from this place, what do you guys recommend that I do for the rest of them?
