I had six hours worth of Zoom interviews with an AmLaw100 firm on Monday and Tuesday last week. I haven’t heard back on anything yet - when is “too” long to have not heard back and when should I reach out to their in-house recruiter for some kind of update?

Hi all - got my offer late yesterday and gave notice at my current firm today. Thank you for your insights and I hope those of you still waiting for an offer hear back soon!

I did something similar and they said “we are looking to hire soon, fast as possible, we will be in touch in four weeks” so maybe that’s normal

Did they give you any sort of timeline? If not, it’s probably okay to reach out to the recruiter on Friday this week, reiterate your interest in the firm, and ask if they can provide any estimate on the expected interview timeline.

Imo Friday emails get lost. People just want to be done for the week and not get another thing put on their plate.

I had the same type of response - no time line on this position, but I'll get back to you within a couple of weeks. It's so hard to be patient though, and even harder to not start to doubt that they picked you. For perspective, my interview was on the 10th.

I reached out to the firm recruiter on the 12th to say thanks for organizing everything and to ask about the next steps and she responded with what I wrote above. I'd like to reach out again, but I don't want to bug her and I don't know the best timing for that.

Many firms have hiring committees that meet every other week or once a month. Hopefully this is the holdup and you re in the hopper! Send a polite email to inquire on Friday AM.
