9780134116068: The Wall Street Professional's Survival Guide: Success Secrets of a Career Coach (paperback)

The Wall Street Professional’s Survival Guide: The Secrets of a Career Coach is the only complete, up-to-date, and practical guide for financial industry professionals seeking new or better jobs in today’s brutally competitive environment. Author Roy Cohen spent more than 10 years providing outplacement services to Goldman Sachs’ employees. In this book, he shares finance-specific job-hunting insights you simply won’t find anywhere else.

 

Drawing on his immense experience helping financial industry professionals find and keep outstanding positions, Cohen tells you what to do when and if you’re fired (or ready to move), how to develop a “game plan” and search targets, how to build your “story”, how to move from the sell-side to the buy side, and much more. You’ll find industry-specific guidance on interview strategy, resumes, follow-up, references, and even negotiation with real examples drawn from Cohen’s own practice.

 “The author shares with the reader over 20 years of accumulated knowledge in dealing with job searches. A most timely book for those adversely affected by the vicious downsizing the labor force has experienced. Read it and improve your odds of regaining entry into the labor force!”

--Leon G. Cooperman, Chairman and CEO, Omega Advisors, Inc.

--Barbara Corcoran, founder of The Corcoran Group

 

“Roy Cohen masterfully addresses all elements of a job search from self assessment to job negotiation strategies in his book The Wall Street Professional’s Survival Guide. Cohen presents this information through logical steps and exercises, which enables the job seeker to use this book as a practical working guide. To illustrate the points, Cohen skillfully provides examples from his vast experiences as a professional coach. The valuable information in this book is relevant to the recent college graduate and to the experienced finance industry professional.”

--Meg Flournoy, Associate Director, Student and Alumni Services, The Fuqua Career Management Center, Duke University

“In a job world turned upside down by the global financial crisis, Roy Cohen has produced a roadmap for those intrepid souls who wish to begin careers anew--whether in finance or elsewhere. It is never easy to start over, particularly if one is middle aged, but the rewards can be great, both financially and more importantly with relationships. Roy Cohen has written a work about life’s lessons and renewal opportunities. It is a very good read.”

--William W. Priest, Chief Executive Officer, Epoch Investment Partners, Inc.
