Doostang Success — Two Job Offers in Three Weeks

Sergey
San Francisco State University 2010
Investment Operations Associate – Hewins Financial Advisors

In April of 2010, I decided to try Doostang’s Premium Subscription. My goal was to test it for my future job search, since I was graduating in May. Even though I didn’t send too many applications, I was able to land a few interviews in the investment field. No offers have followed, but I still was satisfied with the results – it was a test after all. I took some time off after my graduation. Well-rested, I went back to business at the full speed at the end of July.

Even though I used several sources, Doostang was the most useful one. There are no third-party recruiters on Doostang, and there are no anonymous posts.

Doostang customers always know for certain if their resumes have been viewed by a hiring manager. Therefore, it was very easy for me to create personalized follow-up strategies. Most of my interviews came after such follow-ups.

In three weeks, I received two job offers.

I have already recommended Doostang to at least three or four of my friends.

Doostang Success — Job Not Posted on Any Other Site

Christine
Brown University, 2008
Reporter – Pharmawire

“I found my current position as a Healthcare Business Intelligence Reporter through Doostang after several months of job searching without success.  The position had been ‘recommended to me’ by my Doostang homepage based on other jobs I had browsed and applied to.

Within a day of applying for the position, I knew that my resume had been downloaded by my current employer, compared to other job application systems where an applicant has no idea whether anyone has looked at their application materials.

Within days, I had my first interview and case study.  It was great for the application process to move quickly for a change!

I hadn’t seen this job posting with any other site, and without Doostang I wouldn’t have my current job.”

Doostang Success — Jobs Posted Directly by the HR

Eric
Vanderbilt University, 2007
Project Manager – Discover Financials

“The market has changed a lot compared with the time I graduated. I knew I had to try my best to get a new job that I wanted, but it was just difficult under the current economic situation. First, I started networking on LinkedIn, but it did not go very smoothly because there were not enough job sources. Then I read about Doostang from a newspaper – the whole elite school networking concept was the key part that attracted me to join.

I wanted to relocate to a new city, and Doostang quickly sorted out all the related jobs in that area by different distance range. That was very neat, since I was not sure about the suburb city names.

I heard from the HR two days after sending my resume. The job I applied to was posted directly by the HR, so she was able to review my resume immediately.

I flew to the city after two weeks to have an on site interview. Now I am comparing this offer with another one on my plate.

The whole application process and job hunting was not as stressful as I thought. I could see when the HR reviewed my resume and when they downloaded my resume, so I was very aware of the progress of my job application. I will recommend Doostang to my other friends – since it helped me land a job, it probably could do the same for others. Good job, Doostang!”

Doostang Success — A Job at a Fun, Young Company with Room for Growth

Claire
Pomona College, 2010
Accounts Payable Clerk – HauteLook

“I graduated from Pomona College in May 2010 and was completely overwhelmed by the career search. Other career sites were impossible to navigate, and my school system didn’t have what I was looking for. I was a very picky job searcher – I even turned down a few offers. I received an email from Doostang and immediately signed up, as I was incredibly impressed by the quality of the jobs.

I received over 5 interview requests, and now have a job at a fun, young company with a lot of room for growth!”

Doostang Success — Flourishing Career as an Analyst

Eric
SUNY Buffalo, 2006
Analyst – EnerTech Capital

Doostang is directly responsible for my flourishing career. Since graduating SUNY Buffalo in 2006, I used several career websites to find positions, however none perfectly sourced and marketed my interests and skill sets. Doostang‘s ease of use and robust features provided me with unique targeted searches, which I leveraged into interviews.

I connected with my current employer via Doostang and seamlessly transitioned into the role.”

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 — Highly Valued Opportunities from Globally Recognized Employers

Joe
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2006

Doostang was very helpful in assisting me in my search. Having spent the last four years of my career in investment banking and private equity, I was at a unique juncture of my career. I was looking for opportunities that could offer a different experience while still have a need for someone with my background. I found recruiting to be challenging initially because many positions did not have the right fit.

However, Doostang proved to be an excellent recruiting platform for a medley of financial firms, and ultimately I was able to speak with a number of firms that needed someone with my background and offered exactly what I was looking for.

Doostang not only has a user-friendly interface for employment seekers, but it also has highly valued opportunities from globally recognized employers. Doostang will only become more valuable for both employers and prospective employees as the brand continues to achieve critical mass. I would definitely recommend this website to any of my friends.”

Doostang Success — Taking the Pain Out of Job Search

Jasim
Boston University, 2007
Analyst – HighPoint Solutions

“After the financial collapse, I turned to Doostang in late 2009 on the advice of a friend.  In a tough economy and an even tighter job market it isn’t easy to part with any amount of money, but I feel the money I invested in monthly subscriptions to Doostang was far and away the best money I’ve spent in quite some time.

I only wish I turned to Doostang sooner in my search.  At first I was hesitant to pay for job listings so I networked like crazy, used free job sites and job boards, and applied directly to companies.  Having little luck there I decided to give Doostang a shot and added it to my job search strategy.

Though I put in countless hours and months of work into networking and applying through company websites, I received my job offer through Doostang.
I applied on a Saturday, had a phone interview on Tuesday, and got the job offer the following week.

What Doostang does very well is it takes a lot of the pain out of the job search by completely eliminating trash ads, pop-ups, and phony jobs that a lot of the other free sites have.  It also does a great job at aggregating high quality positions through its filter, so when you search for ‘Analyst’ ‘Boston’ you’re only seeing legitimate, quality job matches.

Applying to jobs is never fun, but Doostang definitely takes a lot of the pain out of it.  I also found that the quality and quantity of jobs on Doostang kept motivating me to keep applying because I would see new listings for analyst positions and I would say to myself ‘there are still a lot of really good jobs out there’. The key to any job search is persistence, and while that has to come from the individual, Doostang certainly makes the search easier.”

Doostang Success — 8 Interviews and an Offer from a Boutique Private Equity Firm

Haifeng
Columbia University, 2010
Investment Manager – New York Pacific Company

“Before I came to NYC to get an MBA, I did not have any work experience in the financial service industry. When I graduated from business school with an MBA degree and previous unsuccessful start-up experience, I found that I was not welcomed by Wall Street in the tough market. Even the expensive MBA degree could not help me switch my career path as I had planned before.

Later, one of my friends who studied at Wharton recommended Doostang to me and told me that the jobs on Doostang overlapped with most of the jobs on the internal website from his B-School career development center. When I heard that, I joined Doostang right away.

After two weeks, I received 8 interviews from various employers in the financial service industry, and finally I got an offer from a Boutique PE firm on Wall Street that directly invests in companies in China.

Thanks a lot for Doostang’s help. I have recommended this precious resource to all my friends who still struggle hard to find a job in this tough market. I hope they can eventually achieve their goal as well.”
