9780137052646: The Wall Street Professional¿s Survival Guide: Success Secrets of a Career Coach

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.
