“After being disappointed with the employers on my university website, a friend recommended I try out Doostang.  I was very open minded about my job search and submitted my resume to as many companies as I could.

Only halfway into my one-month membership I got invited by a firm to come to their office in San Francisco all the way from Philadelphia.  After a stressful and trying interview they offered me a job on the spot.

I had spent over 4 months interviewing with companies on my campus and it only took 15 days on Doostang.  What can I say, thank you Doostang!”

Doostang Success — Two Job Offers in Three Weeks

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.

We’re one day closer to the weekend and, judging from this week’s news, we all need it. Between Dow Jones disturbia and hip hop celebri-relationship disturbia… Remind us again what those problems were exactly when there was mo’ money?

The good news: we’ve got thousands of excellent opportunities on Doostang to keep you inspired, both here in the US and around the world. Today we turn our glances to international job markets to get perspective for those considering a move elsewhere. A friend of Doostang, who went from U of Chicago to Credit Suisse in SF to London, offered his thoughts.

Relevant Thoughts from a Venture Capital Associate, London

So, you’re in finance. What’s the word in London? Are there good opportunities there?

Definitely. Both in London and elsewhere in Europe there are plenty of businesses looking to expand and pull in more business. Speaking other languages – e.g. French, German, Spanish – is a huge advantage that will serve you very well here.

How did you end up doing VC in London? What’s that been like?

I knew what I wanted to do, found out this firm was hiring and was just really proactive. I talked to friends in VC in London and got a referral, which helped a lot.

The interview process was pretty rigorous (phone interviews, in-person interviews in the Silicon Valley and London, lots of back-channel references, etc), but well worth it. The fund is relatively insulated to the crisis since we raised money pre-crash, so we’re doing well. In general investors have an American bend because of VC’s roots in the Silicon Valley, but business is way more formal.

How about your lifestyle there?

The city is a blast – full of creativity and culture. It’s also easy and inexpensive to travel on the weekends. London’s is even more expensive than New York, so I can’t have a large apartment and car like I did in SF, even though you’re making more money. But the lifestyle and travel is well worth it.

What about opportunities beyond finance?

I have friends in entertainment and publishing. There are definitely opportunities in those spaces in London. Soft skills are super valuable, especially in media/entertainment.

Outside of Europe, from what I’ve seen China is the easiest place to get a job as an English-speaker. My brother went there and got a job at Hewlett Packard in marketing really quickly, and my other friend just got promoted VP of Business Development at a solar company – he’s been there less than a year and spoke no Chinese when he arrived.

Finally, what did you think of this interview? Honestly.

Just like a freestyle rap session. Seriously though, enjoyed it very much and hope that it has been helpful to those who read it.
