Announcing SUITED which is designed to help deserving finance candidates find companies looking for their skill set

Suited uses artificial intelligence to identify finance candidates most likely to succeed with more than just a resume

Suited is a next generation predictive recruiting platform powered by artificial intelligence

To Marquette Finance Majors:

Suited goes beyond a student’s resume to highlight their candidacy holistically and helps connect students to top-tier investment banks. Suited gathers hundreds of data points from investment banking employees and uses artificial intelligence algorithms to identify key drivers of success. This is used to identify students likely to succeed in investment banking.

If you are interested in investment banking, we recently learned of a new posting resource and had a phone call with one of the product founders.  A website called Suited – www.wellsuited.com – is used by some investment banks as a way to search for interested students/applicants and as a posting site for opportunities.  

Key Features of Suited

·         Students may create profiles on the site to explore postings and to be available for employers that search the site.  The Suited founder described an interest within his firm to recruit from a broader range of colleges and universities.  This firm is posting to Handshake and complimenting posting opportunities with searching for applicants that create profiles on the Suited site.

·         Employers post personality assessments to Suited to evaluate applicants’ fit for different types of positions.

·         Students may continuously update their Suited profile (like LinkedIn) to present your most current information to employers. 

·         Go to their web site for more information: www.wellsuited.com

Keep checking Handshake!

This is an interesting development, but is not yet the place where the majority of jobs and internships are posted.  KEEP CHECKING HANDSHAKE and please do so often as many application deadlines will occur in the next 1-3 weeks. 

If you have questions about your search, schedule a Business Career Center appointment through Handshake – Career Center (menu) – Appointments (pull-down).
