GoBuySide: The Best Talent…As Needed

The financial industry today is experiencing growth in markets all over the world.
And the need for flexible talented people for both short and long term positions has never been greater. However, there also is an increasing trend to consider candidates in various locations since many projects can be worked on remotely. But how does a financial company quickly find the most competent people in a sea of resumes for time-sensitive assignments?

GoBuyside can provide a solution. State-of-the-art applicant sourcing software and tracking systems are used to access applicants across a wide range of online social media sites and job boards. Candidates from all over the world, with a wealth of diverse experience and skills, are collected in our database of 100,000+ people. GoBuyside’s experienced associates constantly compile, refine and update data on applicants to find the best possible fit for a client’s needs. The firm knows its client base well too, and collects a large amount of data on each firm it does business with. This information is available to candidates when evaluating available positions so they can make better career decisions and be more confident at interviews.

Both clients and candidates benefit from GoBuyside’s thorough analysis of candidates, companies and industry trends. A survey was conducted by the firm of 300 pre-MBA candidates who were recruited by GoBuyside before they started their first assignment. They were asked to rank the criteria they valued most in their job search. The results reveal that firm prestige (45% ranked it 1 or 2) was more important than compensation and work-life balance.

It’s important to note that many in GoBuyside’s network of candidates do not have MBA degrees and many clients do not require them for today’s more diverse financial and investing firms.

GoBuyside is a firm founded in 2011 and is headquartered in New York City. It specializes in recruiting candidates from its extensive global network of clients and candidates for temporary and permanent positions. GoBuyside has placed people at numerous financial entities such as hedge funds, investment banks and consulting firms. The firm has over 400 clients and has placed candidates in over 50 cities around the world.
