This is really bugging me. Recentlywith the regional office of an /EB. During one interview, the VP asked where else I was interviewing. I told him I was also interviewing at Firm X. He then asked which firm I would choose if I had the option, and I said that I'd choose his firm over Firm X (obviously) because of blah blah blah.
The VP said he knew people at Firm X and would let them know that I'd choose his firm over Firm X. He then pulls out his phone and literally starts emailing/texting his buddies at Firm X...
Didn't get an offer from that office, and never heard back from Firm X again (they had verbally invited me to a superday, but my contact there ceased contact with me).
So... WTF was that?
