Hi guys, last year i've gone through the final round of a firm but didn't get an offer, and I'm planning to reapply again this year. In order to set up my networking plan, and to prepare the dialogue, I'd like to understand senior's view on reapplicants.
Does positioning myself as a reapplicant make the impression that I have diligently prepared to reapply to my dream firm, or it works the other way around (singnaling that I might not be a top candidate as I've already failed once)? Also, how common is it that re-applicants get an offer from the same firm?
Thank you so much for your advice.
