Doostang Success — It Took Seconds to Get My Foot in the Door

Chris

Florida State University, 2011
Research Analyst – AEW Capital Management

“I recently graduated from Florida State University’s Master of Science in Finance program. I was looking for a career in which I would play a vital role in research and investment strategies with a large company with international exposure. A friend of mine had referred me to Doostang, and I could not be happier for the advice.

While the job market is still tight, Doostang did a great job of consolidating the job opportunities into an easy application process, where I knew my resume and cover letter were being viewed.

We all know how cut-throat the internet job search can be, but Doostang took out a lot of the heavy lifting in the job search process by allowing me to filter my searches toward the career ventures I deemed relevant, but also ones that I had a decent shot at, being an entry level candidate from a non-target school.

I received three calls back about openings before I found my dream job. I interviewed at all three, and received an offer from a PE firm.

The opportunity wasn’t exactly what I was looking for, so I continued sending out my cover letter and resume until I got an email from my current employer. After two phone screens, I was flown up to Boston, where I interviewed and got the job.

The firm manages over $47 billion of assets and securities, and was just the international exposure I was looking for! This opportunity has put me in a position to get experience at a high quality investment management firm, and sets me up perfectly to continue my own personal education by offering to pay for the CFA.

I have spent years cold calling and networking, trying to get an opportunity that just took me seconds to get my foot in the door for via Doostang.

You can’t put a price on a website that is so filter-friendly, and ensures you with alert features that your resume is being viewed by potential employers. This website was great to help me narrow down the job function and industry that fit my personality and career aspirations. I will continue to, and have been referring Doostang to friends and family. Thanks Doostang!”

Doostang Success — Private Equity Internships and Venture Capital Jobs

Aki

UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN – ROSS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, 2007
ASSOCIATE – OPENVIEW VENTURE PARTNERS

“I left a position in consulting in June 2010 to move into buy-side investing: I wanted to work in either private equity or venture capital. This was an extremely difficult undertaking, especially recruiting ‘off-cycle’ in a down economy, but I was confident that I could pull through.

Within a month of my departure from consulting, I came across a private equity internship through Doostang. Thinking that this was the perfect opportunity, I applied… and got the internship!

While working at my internship, I continued to search for full-time jobs and applied on a weekly basis. I used every resource available to me: multiple headhunters, trade publications (Private Equity Digest, PEHub), career search engines (Indeed, E-Financial Careers) and, of course, Doostang.

Four months into my search, I came across the perfect opportunity in venture capital… again through Doostang! I interviewed and got the job within a week.

Now, I’m looking forward to starting my dream job — and it wouldn’t have been possible without Doostang.

So, thank you, Doostang! You’ve literally helped me turn my career around. I’ll certainly recommend you to all of my friends in the future.”

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!
