Former Summer Associate Testimonials

During the interview process, I asked an associate for a specific example of how the firm was friendly and offered a healthy work-life balance. He mentioned that everyone in his department had met his family. That made Holland & Knight stand out as the firm where I wanted to spend my summer and my career. I put in a good number of hours over the summer to make sure that I could handle the workload and still have a personal life. By the time the summer was over, I was prepared to start as a first-year associate.
There is a distinct camaraderie here at Holland & Knight. The firm presents young associates with what I believe to be a unique opportunity to receive unfettered access and exposure to partners. I find there to be minimal bureaucracy, and as a result, associates are positioned to receive partner-level feedback and mentoring at an early and critical stage in their careers. Associates also receive substantive, challenging work in their early years, as well as opportunities to build their profile internally and externally. The firm has afforded me numerous opportunities to succeed and permitted me to define my career path and control my career trajectory.
