Doostang Success — The Smartest Move I Ever Made

Evan

“My name is Evan and I recently landed a job at a new bulge bracket investment bank, and I couldn’t have found the position without the help of Doostang.

Doostang was extremely helpful even before I started my first job.  I accepted an offer at a smaller investment bank in the middle of the financial crisis and had the misfortune of my employer going bankrupt and being bought.  Unsure and worried for my career, I turned to Doostang.  After a long absence from the site, I noticed that it had expanded outside of the academic realm, and also offered thousands of new jobs and many different areas.  Sadly, it was no longer free.  This would usually turn me away immediately as I never have luck on these types of sites. Noticing that many of the positions I was interested in could only be accessed via subscription, I thought I’d give it a try.  At the time I was more than willing to spare a little cash for a job that could set me on the right career path.

That was the smartest move I’ve ever made.

Throughout my senior year I had multiple interviews, but ultimately went back to the employer that I had originally signed with. Three months into this job after college, I knew it was time to start looking for something else.  I turned back to Doostang again.  Having had experience in the finance industry and wanting to be based in a financial hub such as San Francisco was very helpful.  It also didn’t hurt that Doostang had many employers looking to hire someone just like me.

For a long while, checking new postings on Doostang became a nightly ritual.  A few of my friends also signed up on Doostang, after I told them how much potential there was for finding a great job.  What we liked most was being able to send postings to each other that we might have missed.  I honestly can’t recommend any site other than Doostang for people interested in investment banking. My friends who have tired of other jobs have also found that the site has incredible opportunities in consulting, corporate development and private equity.

Doostang, hands down, has the largest aggregation of high quality professional jobs I’ve ever seen in one place.”
