Preston, Stanford University 2008
Consultant - London International Group
I am a graduate from Stanford University with a Masters Degree in Structural Engineering and UC Irvine with a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering. After working in the Structural Engineering industry for over two years I decided that I wanted to try finance/business. Not knowing much about the industry I started my job hunt by doing online research and networking as much as I could. I contacted friends, family, and anyone I knew in the industry. I also browsed my alumni networks for any job postings.
After a week or two of research and networking, one of my friends mentioned a website called Doostang. So I decided to check it out and browse some of the jobs. The jobs looked very promising and I decided to sign up for the three month membership. I began applying and within a week or two I got a response from a consulting firm and they asked me to come in for a first round interview. After a couple of weeks I finally got the job.
Doostang was an essential part of my job search. The site is very organized, and the search function is great for browsing jobs. By applying through Doostang I really felt that my cover letters and resumes were being read by the right people. I was even notified by email whenever my resume was downloaded, which showed that someone in the company had a chance to see it. Trying to break into the finance/business industry as an engineering major as opposed to a finance major was tough, especially since I didn't really have the right connections, but Doostang provided those all important connections for me and I highly recommend the Premium Membership to anyone who is serious about finding a great job.View all success stories
