I’m a 2L and just got a call back from a big firm and think it went great. The only problem is that I left my douchebag interviewing portfolio in one of the six offices I went to and have no clue which one. Any advice on how to probe for this?
My biggest fear is that they think I’m one of those needy people who leave things around for more face time opportunity. And that I’m careless and forgetful. Which I obviously am.
Chill out. Nobody’s thinking about your douchebag interviewing portfolio. I promise. This isn’t the same as accidentally-on-purpose leaving your coat at an ex’s apartment after a post-breakup one-nighter. Everyone’s way too busy to give your damn portfolio a second thought. So get over yourself. Having said that, if you NEED the portfolio back for some reason—some legitimate, non-needy reason—call or email the hiring coordinator. Other than that, move on.
