Why your firm?
"The training system. Being able to choose which areas to work in allows you to gain a broader experience than you would in a seat-based training contract. I also enjoy the idea of building relationships with associates and partners in order to get work from them, rather than being given work because you are a trainee randomly assigned to a certain department."First year trainee, London
"A combination of the non-rotational system and the simplistic application process. I liked that there was no psychometric testing and no assessment centres, just a covering letter and the opportunity to participate in the vac scheme and see whether or not Jones Day was for me."First year trainee, London
"I wanted to work at a global law firm and also wanted to shape my own career. Jones Day ticked both boxes."First year trainee, London
"I didn't want to be one of a hundred trainees as per magic circle. Also pays more."Second year trainee, London
"I'm a British/American dual national and wanted an American firm with an established presence in London. After having spent a long time in formal education I dreaded the structured seat system offered by other firms and was attracted to the idea that Jones Day would allow you to shape your training contract to suit your interests from the start."Second year trainee, London
"To be honest, I liked the US salary with the UK pedigree. A smallish London office of 350 or so with an overall large global presence somewhere around 3,000."Second year trainee, London
