Doostang Success — The Perfect Finance Job

Christa

Columbia University, 2010
Public Finance Associate – Depfa Bank

“In October 2010 a friend told me about Doostang. At the time I was discouraged since I had graduated in May 2010 and was still having difficulty landing interviews like most of my classmates.

My friend said that Doostang was an amazing job search website, so I joined, became a premium member and started to see jobs listed on the site that were not being featured on competitor websites.

Within two weeks I started receiving phone calls regarding interviews, but I was still looking for the perfect fit. In December, I received a call regarding a job that I thought was the perfect job for me, given my education and previous work experience.

I interviewed on a Monday and was made an offer that Thursday.

I was so excited to deactivate my Doostang account! I have been in my new position for three weeks and I have never been happier. To be working in a competitive challenging environment – this is the best New Years gift that I could have received.  I told all of my unemployed friends about the site as I am certain that they will be able to find jobs too using Doostang.”

Doostang Success — Senior Associate Consulting Job of My Choice

Kapil

University of Virginia – Darden School of Business,  2009
Senior Associate – PwC

“I graduated with an engineering degree and pursued an MBA from a top 10 business school. I had several years of consulting experience and wanted to move higher-up the ladder in the consulting industry. I started my job search using LinkedIn, IvyExec.com and TheLadders.com. I spent a couple of months using these sites, but I was not getting any success.

One of my friends suggested Doostang to me. Within 1 month of using Doostang I had 3 interviews lined up and now I have a full time job of my choice. I believe that this would not have been possible without Doostang.

I found the job listings on Doostang to be very premium, and recruiters contact you very quickly. I also liked the portal design – it is very convenient to use and offers nice features to narrow down your searches. Furthermore, I was very impressed with the daily emails that listed new jobs at the top to keep my attention. Thank You Doostang.”

It’s one thing to contemplate what resolutions you’d like to pursue for the New Year. It’s another to put together a plan of action for achieving what you set out to do. We’re all notorious for promising to ourselves that we’ll do something and then letting our goals fall by the wayside. Oftentimes, this isn’t because of a lack of drive or tenacity, but rather, the lack of a viable plan of action. So consider these tips when putting together your game plan for 2011:

Be Specific

When setting goals, make sure to frame them specifically. What exactly do you want to achieve and how are you going to measure it? If you can’t say exactly what success looks like, you’re less likely to attain it and more likely to make excuses for yourself.

Put It in Writing

Make your goals official by putting them in writing. Once you do this, you’ve created a tangible document that you have to hold yourself to. Doing this will make reaching your goals seem like a more formal exercise, and will give you something to turn back to for a reminder of what you are trying to accomplish.

Document Your Journey

Similarly, it’s helpful to record your progress as you strive to reach your goals. Doing so keeps you on task and lets you know if you need to work harder. If you’re feeling disheartened, you can browse through the progress you’ve made to remind yourself that success is possible.

Identify Smaller Goals

Far easier than tackling one giant goal is taking on multiple smaller ones that lead up to that ultimate objective – think of this as taking baby steps. Figure out what your first step needs to be, and then plan out all the successive steps you will need to take in order to complete your larger plan.

Find an Accountability Partner

Resolutions are easier to tackle when someone else is doing so alongside you. Keep each other on task and talk through obstacles you encounter. If you also focus on being there for your friend, you are less likely to let yourself down.

Change Your Plan of Attack

If something isn’t working, take a step back and reevaluate what you are doing. Don’t be afraid to change your approach or to readjust your mini-goals.

Reward Yourself

The reward shouldn’t just come when you’ve reached your final goal. Make sure to celebrate your progress along the way. You’ll feel more enthusiastic about the journey, and reaching small milestones is something you should be proud of anyway. Identifying resolutions is admirable in its own right, and is a first step in and of itself. Follow the helpful tips above, and you should be better equipped to sustain your momentum!

Happy New Year,

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.”

Doostang Success – The Exact Investment Banking Position that I Hoped to Find

Dave
University of Michigan, MBA, 2009

“I graduated with an MBA from the University of Michigan in 2009 and continued what was already by that point a frustrating job search. I spent the next six months networking like mad and applying to postings I found through the career services office and on job boards. With the job market so tough I was struggling to land interviews.

I decided to join Doostang on the advice of a fellow alumnus. I had used the service before when redirected to it by another job board, but was skeptical of paying to see postings that may be listed elsewhere for free. The tip proved invaluable, as within a month of joining the Premium service I found the posting that became my job.

I applied on a Sunday, on Monday received a notice that an employer had downloaded my resume, and by the following Sunday had my new job.

Doostang definitely features high-quality jobs not listed elsewhere, and in my case the employer was very motivated to find candidates quickly. Unlike some other services I tried, Doostang is not just recycling things you can find everywhere on the Internet.

The boutique investment banking position I found on Doostang turned out to be the perfect fit and exactly what I hoped to find. I only wish I hadn’t waited so long to access the great opportunities Doostang provides.”


Here’s a small sample of the exceptional jobs you’ll find on Doostang:

Financial Analyst – Top-Tier Investment Advisor, New York, NY

Consultant – Leading Global Consultancy Firm, San Francisco, CA

Pre-MBA Associate – Top Tier Global Asset Management Firm, Dallas, TX

Research Associates – Premier Economic Consulting Firm, Washington, DC

Analyst – Prominent Private Equity Firm, New York, NY
