Reference Request

Figure I will get this started. I had a lateral interview a couple weeks ago and received a request for references yesterday. This is a solid sign, right?

I would assume so.

Yes. I mean, generally any movement beyond dinging you after the interview is more likely than not a good sign. I wasn't asked for references after my lateral interviews but I'm sure it varies by firm.

Thanks for the responses. I suppose I should have been more clear in the OP. I am excited about the movement, just wasn't sure how excited I should be. I know my references are solid so I wonder if this a formality or if it's just secondary step that leads to a longer process. I understand that it's firm specific but figured others could provide anecdotes.

It's not guaranteed (some firms give offers that are contingent on references, and you obviously didn't get that). I've seen people get denied at that stage (even where the references weren't bad).
