Had a callback interview at DC big law about a week ago, a few hours before Covid-19 escalated things. Should I assume I did not get it or that it is on pause? Appropriate to reach out again?

People are still trying to figure out how to forward their phones. No one is hiring someone into this mess, and until more is known about how it will affect workflow. Chances are you aren’t getting hired right now but it isn’t a reflection of you and the same firm may hire you in a few weeks if things shake out well.

It might be on pause. Most firms, big and small, are focusing on transitions and arrangements for the staff they currently have, not on bringing people in to a constantly changing situation.

A1 Good point - this person needs to consider their audience. Without knowing that, I think their best option is to follow up. Obviously, nothing is guaranteed.

I wouldn’t assume that- might be on pause though. It’s okay to ask. What practice group?

Over the last year I’ve had 4 separate interview cycles where after the final round I’ve gotten “you had all strong feedback but the team went with the other candidate.” It’s really insulting to hear these companies say that there isn’t enough qualified black candidates but have your own experience show you that you can do everything right but still you don’t get the offer due to not looking the part I guess
