Jones Day

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Sep 17, 2009 7:34 pm

I had a callback with Jones Day (Dallas) about a month ago, and I haven't heard anything since then. I want to email or call them for an update, but I am too nervous to do so. Has anyone received an offer from them?

For some reason I thought this was a thread about one of those weird foreign holidays like Boxing Day.

Did you know that Spanish Santa Claus puts gifts in the shoes of children? Wacky non-Americans.

I have received an offer from them, but not for the Dallas office. I heard in about a week, fwiw. Don't know if each office does things independently or what, though.

If you have other offers, you could probably call and ask for a status update. Even if you don't, you could always call and express your continued interest and ask for a status update. I don't think they would view this as annoying, if you spin it the right way. Good luck!

My callback with Jones Day was last Friday. That particular office (not Dallas) told me that, at the time, they were 2/3 of the way though their callback interviews and that they had not made any hiring decisions yet. They said that they were going to have their first meeting at the end of this week and that they were going to be making some hiring decisions then. Both the recruiting manager and the hiring partner told me that I could call or e-mail them any time for an honest answer about where I am on their list.

Seeing as it's "one firm worldwide" the attitude can't be that different for different offices, right?

EDIT: And yes... I'm starting to get very nervous today.

Wrong. I know people with offers from a couple of Jones Day offices.

Edit: I see you've edited your post. You can contact most firms to ask where they are in the process, though I really don't see what good that does unless you have other offers that have been lingering and you are trying to wrap up your decision.

I said the attitude can't be that different, not where they are in their hiring process. As in, they probably wouldn't mind if OP called. Also, it might be helpful for OP to know that SOME offices hadn't made offers yet (unless the hiring partner lied to me :roll: ).

I see your point. It might be helpful for nerves, but I probably wouldn't call unless I had another offer.

Sorry, I misunderstood what you were saying.

I think it might seem helpful for nerves, but I don't think it will actually help nerves. It's not like a firm will say "oh we're so glad you called us, we were about to call you." At best you are going to get a "we're still in process, hang tight." At worse you will get a "why, do you have offers elsewhere?" If you don't, you've moved from showing interest in their firm to seeming desperate. I totally get the urge to call, but I think in the end it will not give any useful information and risks putting you in a worse position.

Not really. I've worked at Jones Day and the one firm worldwide thing is only a little more than a catchphrase. Different JD offices have different hiring standards, policies, and timetables. I know of one prospective summer that wanted to split between two offices. One office loved him but the other didn't, so it was a no go and he ended up going somewhere else.

I emailed their Houston office asking for an update, and I received no response. AWESOME.

OP here...I sent emails to the two recruiters. Let's see if they reply.

Has anyone received rejections after JD callback? Was it an email or letter? How long from CB? Should we interpret this silence as a rejection?

What is with these anonymous posts? Someone needs to be doing some outing/warning/banning.


I don't really see what's the problem with anon posts that aren't flames/trolls.

I received an offer the day following my callback (not Dallas), and a classmate of mine who interviewed at a different office (not Dallas) had the same experience (offer the following day). I wonder if the process is tiered, or if it's just reflective of different office practices.

Guys (or Girls), if you're going to anonymous post, then provide the name of the office...
Especially for people with the offers, if they read your post, you still have an offer, and it doesn't help with a firm like Jones Day to say that I got an offer next day from the Not Dallas Office (cause, well, there are a lot of offices).

It's not a Spanish Santa Claus. Its the Three Kings. The day of the Three kings is January 6th and thats who leaves the presents in the shoes.

I was the earlier poster, and the response was actually for each of those offices.

I had an interview with Jones Day New York this Tuesday and was wondering if anyone has received offers from this office. If so, how long did it take until you heard?

Same office. Interviewed last week. Heard the same day.
