Doostang Success — Breaking into the Finance / Business Industry

Preston
Stanford University, 2008
Consultant – London International Group

“I am a graduate from Stanford University with a Masters Degree in Structural Engineering and UC Irvine with a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering. After working in the Structural Engineering industry for over two years I decided that I wanted to try finance/business. Not knowing much about the industry I started my job hunt by doing online research and networking as much as I could. I contacted friends, family, and anyone I knew in the industry. I also browsed my alumni networks for any job postings.

After a week or two of research and networking, one of my friends mentioned a website called Doostang. So I decided to check it out and browse some of the jobs. The jobs looked very promising and I decided to sign up for the three-month membership.

I began applying and within a week or two I got a response from a consulting firm and they asked me to come in for a first round interview. After a couple of weeks I finally got the job.

Doostang was an essential part of my job search. The site is very organized, and the search function is great for browsing jobs.

By applying through Doostang I really felt that my cover letters and resumes were being read by the right people.

I was even notified by email whenever my resume was downloaded, which showed that someone in the company had a chance to see it.

Trying to break into the finance/business industry as an engineering major as opposed to a finance major was tough, especially since I didn’t really have the right connections, but Doostang provided those all important connections for me and I highly recommend the Premium Membership to anyone who is serious about finding a great job.”

Doostang Success — A Dream Job Offer for an International Student after Just One Month

Ariel
Columbia University, 2010
Global Media Analyst – Coverago

Doostang was recommended to me by one of my friends who landed a dream job after being a Premium Member for three months. I was a little skeptical about getting a subscription – living in New York City has taught me to doubt basically everything. I tried the two-day trial first and instantly noticed many exclusive job openings that could not be found anywhere else. Then I subscribed for a month.

Next thing you know, I landed a job within a month through Doostang! And I am an international student who needs visa sponsorship – it is much harder for a non-citizen to find a job in the states.

However, I got several on-site interviews during the first two weeks of being Premium, and one job offer after just one month.

My membership is going to expire today and it feels pretty awesome that I don’t need to renew the membership since I got a call from my dream job this morning and I am going to be a financial journalist this October. I have already recommended Doostang to all of my friends who are still looking for jobs, and I am sure they will land jobs soon with the help from Doostang.”

Doostang Success — High Quality Job Listings and a Thoughtfully Organized, Intuitive System

Kail
Skidmore College, 2009
Paralegal

“I subscribed to Doostang’s Premium Membership sometime in late 2009, after a friend highly praised and recommended the service. I had hastily accepted a position before graduation, mainly because of worries around the job market at the time, and I was looking to move elsewhere.

I realized that the Premium Membership is well worth the price: the benefits of a thoughtfully organized, intuitive system, and high quality job listings made my job search that much easier.

I would highly recommend using the Saved Search feature, which sends a daily email with new job postings that you are interested in. There are dozens of new postings every week, and if you do not see the job you want immediately, rest assured it will come by.

I applied to a number of jobs directly through the site (which could not be any easier), had interview offers within a few days, and eventually landed the job I wanted.

I am now in an environment filled with highly talented individuals doing genuinely interesting work. What more could I ask for?

My advice: Skip the headhunters, sign up for the Premium Membership, actively monitor the postings you are interested in, and most importantly, be patient!

Doostang Success — A Newly Created Venture Capital Associate Job

Phil
UPenn 2002, NYU Stern 2007
Venture Capital Associate – Kaplan, Inc

“I found my current Venture Capital Associate position at Kaplan, Inc.’s newly created venture capital investing subsidiary through Doostang.

I was previously an investment banker, and Doostang was more helpful in facilitating the traditionally difficult transition from the ‘sell side’ to the ‘buy side’ of finance than any recruiters I worked with, other websites, or even my personal networking efforts.

Fundamentally, Doostang did a better job of (1) posting only high-quality jobs, (2) enabling me to search regularly (through saved searches) on key terms, and (3) providing a clean application interface than any other resource I leveraged in my job search.”

Avery
Trinity College, 2007
Compliance Analyst – ACA Compliance Group

“Purchasing a Doostang Premium membership was worth every penny and it was by far the best job search database that I used!

I applied to several positions that I learned about exclusively through Doostang and I received more than 5 interview invitations and an eventual job offer.

Doostang is a really great career resource that I would highly recommend to anyone searching for a new job. Doostang is different from Monster and CareerBuilder because it advertises a variety of positions across a variety of different fields with good companies. I am extremely happy that I joined Doostang and I am very excited to start my new job!”
