So you want a job at an elite hedge fund? The first step is to write a good resume. Here is the top tip from HedgeCo:
“Resumes that are focused in ‘I’ space are a really big turnoff to managers,” Baiynd told StreetID. “Managers who are serious about building good teams for their companies do not want an I-based resume. ‘I did this, I did that.’.”
“Remember: when we write resumes — particularly as younger people — we write them as, ‘Hey, listen, here’s what I want,’” Baiynd continued. “That is the last thing a company cares about. They don’t care about what you want. They care about what they want. If you give them what they want, you’re going to get what you want. But it’s got to be focused from that element of superior and subordinate.”
The main thing is to focus on what you can offer your potential employer and not what you want. What does your potential employer urgently need done that only you can do? Understand this and you’ll have no problem getting a job at a top hedge fund.
