“I like to think that I followed the road less traveled in my time at college. I threw myself into activities and summer internships that barely had anything to do with each other in terms of a future direction into a specific career or industry. I figured I had enough on my plate during college that I’d worry about jobs after graduating.
Writing up my resume a few days into my unemployed, stay-at-home postgraduate life, I realized I had accumulated such diverse experiences that focusing on any one career path seemed impossible. I spent countless hours refreshing the web page of my college’s Career Services job posting board only to find that I hardly fit any of the listed jobs’ qualifications and descriptions.
After nine months passed by, a friend told me about Doostang. Within weeks of searching the wealth of job posts on Doostang and utilizing its powerful search filters, I found a job that I could incorporate each and every experience on my resume.
In one week, I had a phone interview. A week after that, an in-person interview. And finally a week and a half later, my very first offer.
Now as I finish writing this, I am in San Francisco, having moved just a week ago from New Jersey. I start work in two days for a strategic business consulting firm that focuses on people and the physical spaces they work in. I have no doubt that Doostang was instrumental in bringing me to where I am now, in San Francisco and employed.
Doostang is a fantastic career tool for people with all sorts of experiences and backgrounds.
