Our Premium Jobs have generated a lot of interest from our members (not to mention Businessweek), and a few questions. Whether you’re on the market and curious due to the recession or term limits, we wanted to take a moment to answer them:
Is Premium right for me?
You’re really the best judge of this, if we had to characterize our Premium Jobs here’s what we’d say: several thousand elite opportunities, about half in finance and half in other industries (consulting, media, entertainment and technology are big), mostly in major metro areas (New York, San Francisco, LA, etc), and from the internship to VP level, with a sweet spot at the 2-6 years of experience range. It’s no coincidence that mirrors our community demographics . Here’s a quick taste:
Strategy/Biz Dev Manager, MTV Networks, Miami
Associate, H.I.G. Capital, San Francisco
Decision Analyst, Booz Allen Hamilton, Norfolk
Private Equity VP, Ares Management, Los Angeles
Once I Go Premium, can I see the names of the hiring companies?
Absolutely. You’ll have access to the full description of every Premium Job, and can apply to as many as you’d like for the duration of your subscription.
What happens when I submit my application? Where does it go?
ALL of our Premium Jobs go to REAL PEOPLE, i.e. hiring managers. Why should you care? A lot of jobs posted online aren’t advertisements for real openings. If you’ve ever encountered postings tied to generic company inboxes or, worse yet, fake postings by a recruiting agency that’s just collecting resumes, you know how frustrating this is. Not on Doostang – our Premium Jobs are real jobs, with real people and a real inbox behind them. Beat’s a black hole, right?
These jobs are great, but it would be nice to save some money right now. Any discounts?
Damn straight. There are two ways to Go Premium and save. First, all members of our preferred alumni networks are eligible for exclusive discounts up to 40% so, join your school network today. Second, once you go premium, you can refer your friends to Premium and have your membership extended for free every time one of your friends upgrades. And get this – your friends will get a 50% discount, something they will likely appreciate in light of, well, the “R” word.
So, has George W. gone Premium?
Either that or the guys with wires in their ears in an unmarked van outside our office are just the future of bluetooth.
That’s it for now, but please keep the questions coming! That’s how we make Doostang better for you.
