Hi all, got a career question (especially for law school/lawyer bees)
Back in the late summer I applied to my dream job and dream location and got an interview. I’m a 3L and this was for a permanent job after graduation The interview went really well, but they told me they wouldn’t know their budget for hiring until January so we probably wouldn’t hear back until then. They assured us that they would contact all the interviewees whether we got the position or not. As soon as I got home I wrote a standard thank you email and got a standard reply. I’ve been playing the waiting game ever since.
A few weeks ago I won a huge competition in a very, very relevant area for the position (they stressed several times in the interview they wanted people who would do well in a court room). I emailed the person who interviewed me and politely let him know I had a new item on my resume, briefly described the competition and reiterated my interest in the position. I was kind of surprised at his reaction, he didn’t seem too excited just reiterated decisions hadn’t been made yet and he would let me know when they’d decided.
As of December I’ll have another new item on my resume, also very relevant to the position and what we discussed in the interview. Once I accomplish that (sorry to be vauge), I wanted to send them my resume one more time and let them know since that’s when they’ll be making decisions, but now I’m not so sure. The response to my second email seemed almost annoyed that I’d bothered him, not even a congratulations.
I really, really want this job, there’s nothing else I want to do or anywhere else I want to be. Should I send my resume again or just wait it out?
