  1. I actually have a question about this too. Will firms generally send offer letters following their phone call so that you are able to compare compensation and things of that nature? Or is that something I should ask them to do if I receive multiple offers?
  2. @NZT for anonymity's sake I'm going to send you a PM
  3. Has anyone heard from anyone Hamilton firms? Specifically Gowling or Ross & McBride ?
  4. I have now received an offer after expressing interest to return but I also should clarify I am not on Bay Street. Thanks for the help!
  5. Hi everyone, I know my question is quite broad and could definitely range depending on the job but I'm wondering if anyone could share their experience about when they received an articling offer from the place they summered at during 2L summer. I've applied to some jobs just in case through the articling recruit but hoping to be invited back to my current place of employment. I'm guessing things will be a lot different this year and personally, its difficult to connect with lawyers about this when most work is done remotely but any insight would help! Thanks in advance
  6. Hey! I’m not sure how much advice I can give as a fellow 2L that has just literally secured a job the other day but I wanted to chime in and let you know that I felt the exact same way after I was unsuccessful through the Toronto recruit. I did a few things to cope and work towards finding a job. After being unsuccessful, I compiled a master list of all the jobs I found through my school, Indeed or other recruits and spent a lot of time tailoring my cover letter and resume to each position. Like I mean preparing cover letters and resumes became my part-time job. I tried to make some sort of connection to each place I was applying to whether that was that I did my undergrad in the particular town the firm is located in or demonstrated interest in a practice area through ECs/courses. I also really kept my options open and didn’t limit myself to a particular city or area of law when applying. I found that this really helped me secure more interviews and after each interview, I wrote down the questions they asked me so that I could better prepare for future interviews. After a lot applications and interviews, I ended up landing a job I’m pretty excited about. All of this to say don’t lose hope. I felt the exact same way as you and I know it sucks when you hear about other people around you landing jobs. However, there are still more jobs that will come out between now and May. I’d be happy to send you my list of current places hiring and the interview questions if you feel as though that would be helpful.
  7. Sorry for being annoying with the posts but has anyone heard from Mann Lawyers or Emond Harnden?
  8. Momentum interview invites are out as well
  9. Thanks for making this thread! I’ve only heard from those two and I go to uottawa.
  10. I’m from uottawa, ours don't come out until Tuesday but I’ve heard from Conway Baxter and Perley-Robertson!
  11. I don’t know if there’s usually a separate thread for the Ottawa recruit but I’ve heard back from some firms today and I imagine other people have too. Should I post this here or under a new thread?
