NYSSA Video on Effective Job Search Techniques

The Finance Professionals’ Post (a publication of the New York Society of Security Analysts) today posted a short video on effective job search techniques. The YouTube link is at: http://youtu.be/Qljc-Vh8UYA

Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, “I’ve been approached recently by prospective May 2012 graduates and asked various questions on career and professional development. I believe that this video offers solid advice --- which is to obtain referrals and to network. “

The first step to an effective job search is be to analyze the market. Amy Geffen, president and CEO of NYSSA, offer solid career advice on what entry level job seekers need to do to maximize their time spent on a job search and how to achieve results.

Geffen says, “It is a tough market, and it will be for the foreseeable future. Job seekers must be prepared to go up against other candidates that may be more qualified. There are several steps to an effective job search. Your first step must be to actually search.”

Dr. Krause stated, “It sounds simple, but here’s the process. Get good grades, demonstrate strong work ethic, show passion for your chosen field, communicate effectively, and network. That’s the key to landing a solid entry level position. That’s what we try to do in the AIM program and that’s why building a strong network is essential. This is also what our financial professionals tell our students each spring during our Ins and Outs of Wall Street event.”
