Finding a job in finance in today’s market

I’m not going to pussyfoot around it: it’s tough to find a finance job in this market.

Whether you’re on Wall Street, working the buy side, or a recent (or soon-to-be) grad looking to break in — we’re in a contractionary cycle for finance jobs.

That means any existing jobs are more competitive and take longer to land.

Many Wall Street jobs have disappeared (as have the firms that employed thousands of people). Hedge funds have had a tough couple of years, some shuttered.

Tough going but you CAN find a job on Wall Street

The job landscape may be changing for Wall Street and the jobs may not be where you’d expect them to be. But there’s still PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITY for aggressive and driven people who want to make a go at it and work in one of the most rewarding industries known to man.

I’m going to help you do it.

4 Days to a Better Job: The 2012 Financial Career Bootcamp

That’s why I’m hosting the 4 Days to a Better Job: The 2012 Financial Career Bootcamp.

I’ve assembled some of the top experts with real-life experience helping professionals (young and more experienced) find their careers on Wall Street, in NYC, in Stamford, wherever people are employed in finance.

No BS — these are people who walk the talk. They’ve literally helped thousands of people build successful Wall Street careers over the past 2 decades.

We’ll focus on practical, actionable advice that will bring you one massive step closer to getting what you want.

I hope you decide to join me and students/graduates from schools like Harvard and UCLA Business Schools February 13-16 for an entirely online event, 8 sessions focused on practical advice to help you further your finance career — or get it jumpstarted.

You can read more about the event here.

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about the event.
