Boston University, 2009
Investment Consulting Associate – KLD Research & Analytics
“Years ago, after reading about successful fund managers including Ben Graham, Martin Whitman, and Bill Miller, I decided to pursue a career in the investment business, a very difficult field to enter for a student from a non-target school. I had a strong interest in the capital markets and followed both domestic and international stocks. One of my older peers in the Finance Club at Boston University had recommended Doostang as a great tool for students and graduates to find employment opportunities in the greater Boston area.
After signing up for the service, I was able to explore Principal Investing internships offered in Boston and New York, focusing on equities, fixed income, commodities, derivatives, and the private markets. I was very interested in institutional investing as opposed to retail, so I applied to a handful of opportunities in that space after the first week of signing up.
Almost immediately, I received notifications from Doostang that my resume was being downloaded and viewed. I was also contacted by a number of employers for first round interviews.
I was very satisfied with the Doostang service, as I was receiving much more attention than at my university career center. I also enjoyed the fact that I would find out immediately that my resume was being viewed. This gave me the courage to follow up directly with the HR departments that viewed my credentials.
After about three weeks, I was able to find a paid internship through Doostang for KLD Research & Analytics, a premier investment consulting firm serving pensions and endowments.
During my first week at the firm, I was working with the Dimensional Fund Advisors and CalPERs on to provide them with customized emerging market investment research on listing requirements and exchange trends.
Doostang is an excellent service!”
