eFinancialCareers (that's us!) announced today that the 2012 North American edition of "Careers in Financial Markets" is now available as a free iPad app. For those of you new to this site, each year we put out a career guide for students, graduates and newcomers to the financial markets. The latest version released today is the sixth North American version and is downloadable from the App Store. If you don't have an iPad, you can download a free PDF version on this Web site.
Both the app and PDF version of the Guide can be used in conjunction with the student section of eFinancialCareers.com, which contains the latest information and advice on landing a Wall Street career.
In this year’s guide, some of the world’s premier investment bank recruiters talk about what they’re looking for in today’s hyper-competitive job market, sharing insight into what makes a standout interview and a successful job search. They also discuss what type of candidates they seek out for employment and how to handle the five most difficult interview questions.
“For every opening, there are scores of applications,” said Constance Melrose, Managing Director, eFinancialCareers, Americas. “While academic achievement is important, you will also be judged on your experience and your interpersonal skills such as leadership and teamwork.”
Also new in this year’s edition: A global perspective, including keys to landing employment outside the United States and in-depth portrait of financial markets careers in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and North America.
We have long been the leading global career site network for professionals working in the investment banking, asset management and securities industries, and now we're part of the "app world."
