Navigating the Job Search through Wasserman

The following post was written by Jeffrey Chan, who through the help of Wasserman Center for Career Development has secured his dream job! He is graduating next month with a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel and Tourism Management, with a concentration in Marketing and Revenue Management.


Throughout my undergraduate career at NYU, a key part of the job and internship search process was reaching out to the Wasserman Center for career advice and development. Wasserman’s division within the Tisch Center for Hospitality and Tourism was very helpful in searching for internship opportunities, full-time job opportunities, and also offered assistance in career development when building my résumé and preparing for interviews. Upon entering the Hospitality program my freshmen year, I did not know much about the Wasserman Center, but as I progressed through the program, I began to utilize the center and the resources that it had to offer.

In my sophomore year, I took a Professional Seminar class that encouraged students to participate in the Wasserman Center by signing up for workshops and scheduling appointments with counselors to build or critique our resumés. After building a resumé, we were required to prepare an elevator pitch about ourselves and practice answering interview questions to prepare us for the job search. This preparation was very beneficial for students in preparing for the Tisch Center Hospitality Expo, a career fair featuring over 50 companies with internship and job opportunities offered each semester during the fall and spring. During my undergraduate career at NYU, I have secured two internship opportunities through the career fair and Wasserman offered plenty of assistance along the way.

During my junior and senior year, I utilized the on-campus recruitment program through the Wasserman Center and this allowed me to secure interview opportunities with great companies that were searching for students with experience relative to our undergraduate program. Throughout the interview process, I scheduled appointments with career counselors if I needed any advice in approaching an interview or if I needed any practice before an interview. In addition, workshops or coaching sessions were also offered to develop our personal branding skills and tips during salary or position-related negotiations.

Overall, the assistance offered was very helpful and it was great knowing that students had support from the Wasserman Center when searching for job opportunities. The Wasserman Center definitely offers plenty of resources for students to use and I highly recommend any undergraduate student in the program to schedule an appointment with a career counselor soon.

Employer Insight: Corporate vs. Startups

Susan Zheng is the co-founder and CEO of Lynxsy, a mobile recruitment marketplace for companies to hire junior, non-technical talent. Previously, she was an early employee at Tough Mudder where she helped the company grow from 10 to 200 in two years. She graduated from NYU Stern with a degree in Finance and International Business.

Corporate, Startup. Startup, Corporate.

Is your head spinning yet? We understand. When you’ve graduated and don’t have a clear career path, it can be difficult to decide in which direction you should set off on your journey. You could enter the ranks of a large business in the corporate sphere. Or you could become a team member at a small startup. It’s all up to you.

As for which you should choose, there’s no right answer. We can’t tell you which path is right, but here’s some info to help you in your decision-making process:

Pros of the Corporate Path

  • Analyst Class Cohorts of first years often get hired by big corporations at the same time each year. Having a peer group in the the same performance and training cycle means you’ll have some people to share in your journey, and even make friends with.
  • Formal Onboarding You’ll have a more concrete job description and there will be an HR process to support your initiation into the job.
  • Guided Professional Development A large company is going to have resources in place to further your career development. You can anticipate formal training days, speakers and mentor meetings to be on your schedule.
  • Huge Clients You’ll get an inside peek at some of the biggest brands and companies, ones you’ve only read about in headlines.
  • Best Practices With years of experience, they’ll have tried and true systems of organization in place.

Cons of the Corporate Path:

  • Cog in the Wheel When you’re working in a 10,000+ employee organization, it’s easier to feel that your contributions are just a drop in the bucket. You won’t be able to see your impact or position and importance within the company as visibly.
  • Bureaucracy This is what people mean when they say “working for the man.” Politics are more likely to play a role in decision-making and hiring. Competition in the corporate world may be fierce, so you’ll have to get your game face on.
  • Slow Movement Things aren’t as fast-moving, so you may not see the result of a project for months or years. This also means that you’ll need to put in more time to move up the corporate ladder.

And now…

Pros of the Startup Path:

  • Visible Impact In a small organization, every contribution you make has a greater visible impact. A startup could go from having 50 users to 1,000 while you’re there, so you’ll be able to see the outcome of your hard work more clearly.
  • Ownership & Responsibility Because it is a smaller company, you’ll feel more personal ownership. It’ll be less about doing work because others tell you to do it, and more about you doing it because you care about moving the ball forward.
  • Acceleration Startups move quickly, as will your place within one if you put in the work. There’ll be a greater opportunity to accelerate your career, as your roles could be changing and growing daily.
  • See the Full Org When you’re working with a smaller team, you’ll get a better grasp of the structure and going-ons of the entire organization. Because your role will likely be less narrow than it would at a larger company, you’ll be in touch with every function of the startup, from marketing to product to tech.
  • Training Ground A startup is a great training ground if you want to found a company one day. Take notes. Fewer Formalities The environment is bound to be much more relaxed. You likely won’t see many suits walking around.

Cons of the Startup Path:

  • On-the-Job Training The edges of your training will be a little more blurred because it will most likely be more of a learning by doing versus a learning from others situation. On a small team, you may not have a manager looking over you, or telling you what to do, so be ready to hop right in and be self-directed.
  • Flying Solo At a startup, recruiting will be on more of a rolling basis. Don’t expect a batch of peers at the same level as you, like in a traditional analyst class. Unless it’s a larger startup, hires will be one-off based on need, and more focused on the individual.
  • No Formal Processes While more established firms may have systems of organization in place, at a startup you may be the one creating them.
  • A Level of Uncertainty Expect ambiguity. You’ll be asked to rise to the occasion on more than one opportunity.

These points are generalizations of the differences between startups and corporations. Do you gravitate towards one or other? Which environment appeals to you most? Use these points as a guide to when you’re weighing your options. And when it comes down to it, go with your gut. You can always switch it up later once you have some experience!

How I, an English Major, Snagged an Awesome Job in Startup Tech Sales

Sawyer Huff is in sales development at Mag+, a platform for creating and distributing designed mobile apps. He graduated from NYU in 2014 with a degree in English and American Literature. Sawyer grew up in Minnesota and currently lives in Brooklyn.

 To say the least, I didn’t envision myself in sales or tech when I started undergrad at NYU. After sitting through my MAP courses for most of freshman year, I decided to take the least practical track and pursue a degree in English just because it was fun. Becoming an English teacher seemed like the career path of least resistance, so I told myself that was the one for me.

After graduation, I spent four years working as a tutor, speculating about writing some books, and questioning everything; I then found myself in a business development role at a tutoring company. My job was to drive around New Jersey networking with psychologists and schools and hire college kids as tutors and match them with referred students. I was stuck at an unoriginal company in a saturated market. Luckily, I did get to do some of my first cold calling, networking, sales, and presentations to prospective clients, all of which were invaluable experiences to dip my toe into. But I was bored by the monotony.

I started looking aimlessly on the internet for job openings on Craigslist, Jobs.com, Indeed, and Glassdoor. Trying to steer clear of education because of my unstellar experience, I started looking around at sales jobs in the tech industry (which I had paid close attention to since some of my friends had dropped out of college to work at startups).

Although I felt confident in my sales and business development skills, I didn’t have the resume for these jobs. I kept having to come up with fluffy cover letters about how I have great people skills and how much I looked forward to devoting myself to evangelizing ABC company’s Product X. I didn’t hear back from anyone.

That was when I came across CloserIQa platform that connects job-seeking tech sales professionals to all the awesome startup jobs out there. On CloserIQ.com, I was prompted to build my profile using my resume stats as well as my specific sales skills: how many years of sales experience I had, which industries I was familiar with, what knowledge of CRM systems and sales tools I had, and so on. Filling out the form was intuitive and quick—I was finished with the basic info in five minutes.

Anticipating the cover letter section, I navigated forward with sweaty palms. Ah, not yet—CloserIQ then prompted me to attach my resume. One more click landed me on a page with just two questions and a play button beneath each. The top of the page read, “Record your answers to the questions below. We recommend keeping your answers down to one minute!”

I was thrown off at first. “Am I confident in my ability to string together a sentence?” I thought. “I know I can identify the meter in sonnet, but can I talk?” The questions were tough, too. “What are some of your greatest professional achievements so far?” and “What are some challenges you’ve overcome and how?” After a few minutes of foot tapping and nail biting, I had my confidence re-gathered and my responses prepared.

After finishing, I had a good feeling. Submitting a recording of myself answering a question was an easier and better way to convey my personality to potential employers. It also saved me a ton of time—no more forced cover letters.

The next day, I got a message through CloserIQ from Javier Rosas, the director of global sales at Mag+. Over the course of the next few weeks I interviewed with him and the CEO Gregg Hano. I knew I could see myself working under both of them, I liked their vision of the future of Mag+, and I was desperate to get into something—anything—that was stimulating. I got the job, so it turns out that thing was tech sales!

Javier is my boss now and I’ve been with Mag+ for about 4 months. It’s been a great experience that will definitely keep me in the industry for a while. Mag+ is a software platform that allows designers to build mobile apps for materials that would have been traditionally printed, such as product guides, memos, and brochures. We started out in the magazine industry when the iPad came out, and grew from there.

Being on the sales side is continuously dynamic, and I have learned a TON on the job, not only through figuring out how the product itself works, but through researching the diverse businesses, industries, and solutions the platform is used in and for. Now I’m working with a creative, intelligent group of people putting something out into the world I can really get behind. Boxes checked!

Getting an English major wasn’t so bad after all.

Three Steps to Getting an Internship in Non-profit / Government

Deniz Duru Aydin is a senior at CAS, majoring in Politics and European & Mediterranean Studies. Originally from Istanbul, Turkey, she interned at various arts-related nonprofits and government organizations including the Lincoln Center and New York State Council on the Arts. She is currently working as a Policy Fellow with Access (www.accessnow.org), an international non-profit organization that focuses on issues at the intersection of technology and human rights. She is also involved in various projects on internet-related policymaking such as the Youth Coalition on Internet Governance and Freedom Online Coalition.

Three Steps to Getting an Internship in Non-profit / Government

by Deniz Duru Aydin (Peer in Career)

Whether you are a politics major who is dedicated to becoming the next President of the United States, or an environmentalist looking to gain experience while working for the advancement of a cause you are passionate about, an internship experience at a nonprofit or governmental organization is a great for your pre-professional development. Here are a few steps – all tested and verified – that will help you if your career search in the non-private sector:

1- Use NYU CareerNet with the right keywords and timing

You should know the best tags to filter from the hundreds of opportunities listed on NYU CareerNet. If you are interested in the non-profit sector and/or government organizations, using specific keywords including, but not limited to, “policy” “human rights” and “advocacy” will make your life easier.

Are you passionate about a specific cause? As the NYU CareerNet job search looks through job descriptions by default, you should also try searching for positions using specific policy issues. As an example, using “climate change” as a keyword will let you find internships posted by organizations working on environmental issues, including specialized governmental agencies. Alternatively, try to run your search using a geographical focus – ie. “Middle East” or “Latin America” – which will help you navigate the best opportunities that fit your academic experience or personal background. If you are an international student, remember to leverage your language skills by looking for opportunities in international organizations that require or prefer foreign language fluency.

Is there an election coming up? Use NYU CareerNet to look for opportunities to volunteer at an election campaign. Timing is definitely important when it comes to finding an interesting experience. As an example, I volunteered during the 2013 New York City mayoral elections to get a chance to observe first-hand how electoral politics work in the United States. Keep an open eye to what is happening around you and unleash your curiosity!

2- Take your job search to external platforms

Apart from NYU CareerNet, keep an eye on the websites of the organizations you are passionate about. Most nonprofits have year-round volunteering opportunities, as well as paid internship/assistantship options that they publish on their websites, mostly under “Careers” sections.

Another great resource for finding the right opportunity is Twitter! Most organizations publish their job advertisements on Twitter, as they think that it is an effective way to reach people who are most passionate about their work. Create a Twitter list that includes organizations that you would like to work/intern for. This way, you will not only have a great resource to check new opportunities in 140 characters, but also a personally curated list that will help you follow the updates on causes you care about!

If you are looking for a more aggregated job search platform, Idealist.org is very useful for finding nonprofit internships and volunteer opportunities, as its mission is “to close the gap between intention and action by connecting people, organizations, ideas, and resources.” In addition, most job search platforms such as indeed.com and LinkedIn job search have opportunities in the non-profit and government sector. Finally, remember to use more specialized resources such as usajobs.gov to find federal and state-level opportunities.

3- Develop new interests, network & network some more!

In today’s world and while you are in New York City, the opportunities for networking are limitless for all sectors, including nonprofit and government. Attending lectures outside your school at NYU would be a great idea to meet with influential thought leaders in the policy area you are interested in, as well as developing new interests. Use the NYU Events listing and keep an eye on the events calendars of interesting university-wide NYU institutions including but not limited to Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, Institute for Public Knowledge or The Governance Lab.

Events outside NYU are also helpful in finding your dream job or internship at a nonprofit. As an example, Dylan James Welch, a senior at NYU studying International Relations, found his current job through attending a TEDx Conference in his hometown Boston. After hearing about the organization, he got involved in its NYU Chapter, which led to an internship opportunity at the organization’s main office in New York City.

If you’d like to put your networking skills to the test, attend this popular Wasserman event featuring a number of non-profit organizations:

Myths vs. Facts: The Truth About Landing a Job in Hospitality

Myths vs. Facts:  Breaking down the misconceptions, urban legends, and false facts around the job search process in the hospitality industry.

MYTH #1: I have to work in a hotel to have a career in hospitality.

Fact:  While working in a hotel is one option for many students, there are other limitless alternatives.  The hospitality industry offers a variety of careers including opportunities at tourism boards, online travel companies such as Orbitz and Expedia, events and entertainment companies as well as hospitality marketing and consulting agencies.

MYTH #2:  All hospitality careers are in food and beverage service.

Fact:  There are actually many sides to hospitality: corporate positions, which include business development, brand strategy, and revenue management for the organization, and front-line positions that consist of event management, guest relations, and operations management.  The great benefit of working in the hospitality industry is that there are numerous dynamic and specialized career paths to explore.

MYTH #3: I can use the same resume and cover letter for each hospitality position.

Fact:  Students need to tailor each resume and cover letter to reflect the position and organization they are applying for. Submitting a focused cover letter and resume highlighting company specific trends, hospitality coursework and projects, as well as your passion for the career path is key to setting yourself apart and grabbing the eye of an industry recruiter.  Schedule a coaching appointment to have your resume and cover letter reviewed by a Wasserman Center Career Coach.

MYTH #4:  Only students with hospitality experience will land positions.

Fact:  While internships are very important in the hospitality industry, employers are also looking for transferable skills from previous professional and academic experiences. Students with experience in another industry should highlight skills specific to hospitality on their resume and in their cover letter.  For example, skills including customer service, project management, sales, teamwork, and budgeting are important in most hospitality positions but can be gained in other fields. Your goal is to show an employer that you understand the needs of the industry and necessary skills to be successful.

MYTH #5:  Students don’t have to network in the hospitality industry.

Fact:  Approximately 75% of students find positions through networking with alumni, professors, friends, and previous colleagues.  Building relationships is vital to gaining contacts that provide opportunities within the hospitality industry.  During your job search you should set a goal to grow and develop your professional network by identifying individuals that you know and who are within your reach.  Students should also take advantage of the NYU Professional Mentor Network and industry events available through the Wasserman Center.  In addition, professional associations such as Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI) and Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) are great resources to learn about industry trends and networking events.

Myths vs. Facts! The Truth About Landing a Job in Finance, Business, or Consulting

image.png

Myths vs. Facts! Breaking down the common misconceptions, urban legends and false facts around landing a job in the Finance, Business, or Consulting industries.

Myth: Only business students can work on Wall Street.

Fact: Many liberal arts students have successful careers on Wall Street.  However, as a liberal arts student, you will need to build your professional skills, network, and experiences in your Sophomore and Junior years. Additional effort must be put forth to find mentors in the industry, and build connections that can lead to internships and full time opportunities.

Myth: Only investment banks and accounting firms recruit through On-Campus Recruitment.

Fact: OCR is open to employers from all industries.  Different industries have different recruiting timelines and strategies.  OCR is most successful for employers who have a larger number of internship or entry-level FT openings.  OCR is a common best practice, but it is not the only recruiting opportunity available to students. Employers can also post jobs to NYU CareerNet (outside of OCR), attend panels, host a site visits, meet-ups, recruiter-in-residences, etc. It’s best for students to use OCR in conjunction with the various other recruitment opportunities available through Wasserman.

Myth: Finance internships are only for juniors.

Fact: Many companies will hire sophomores for summer internships, but it will require additional effort, research, and networking on your part to find those companies. You may also want to consider working for smaller/boutique firms, or even start-ups, who may be more open to bringing on younger interns.  The key is to cast a wide net and keep options open as you begin to build their professional experience, skills, and network.

Myth: Superdays are super fun

Fact: Superdays are a half day or full day final round interview at the company, most commonly seen in finance, accounting, and consulting industries. You should expect to rotate through multiple one-on-one interviews, group interviews, and sometimes, even a leaderless group discussion.  Interviews can be behavioral, case, technical, or stress.  Usually, by the final round, top candidates have met the recruiter and key alumni/decision makers multiple times.

Myths vs. Facts! The Truth About Landing a Job in Arts & Entertainment

Myths vs. Facts! Breaking down the common misconceptions, urban legends and false facts around landing a job in Arts & Entertainment.

Myth: All you need is talent.

Fact: Talent is only part of what gets you hired. As with any job, you also need to have a resume and other application materials that clearly convey your qualifications. It’s also important to be industry savvy.  The more you understand your industry and the more you network within it, the more effectively you’ll be able to position yourself to be hired!

 

Myth: If you want to work in the entertainment industry, you have to be an actor, writer, or director.

Fact: The entertainment industry has a wide range of employment opportunities beyond those jobs! Think about all the names that you see in the end credits of a movie or tv show, or in a playbill. There are a plethora of freelance and staff positions behind the scenes and throughout every aspect of the industry. You can learn about these by reading trade publications, conducting informational interviews, participating in industry networking events, and attending Wasserman panels such as  “What’s Next: Humanities.”

 

Myth: I’m a performer so I don’t need to do an internship. 

Fact: Internships can be a great way for you to get the inside scoop on what the industry wants. For instance, by interning with a casting office, you’ll see how hiring decisions are made, which can help you be smarter about how you present yourself at an audition.

 

Myth: All actors are waiters.

Fact: While the food service industry does offer a flexible schedule that gives actors the ability to also audition, there are a variety of “sustainable” jobs that an actor can have. This includes teaching artist, web designer, tour guide, concierge, IT support, graphic designer, personal organizer, real estate agent, and fitness trainer, just to name a few. A career counselor can help you identify your marketable skills and determine which sustainable jobs might be right for you.

 

Myth: If I don’t have an agent within six months after graduation, I’ll never get work.

Fact: Most early-career artists don’t have agents! In fact, it’s rare for students to obtain agents immediately after graduation. Agents prefer to see that artists have some experience outside of school – if the artist is able to obtain work on their own or is getting notice from competitions (e.g. the Nicholl Fellowship) or festivals (e.g. SXSW), that signals to the agent that the artist has enough talent to be marketable.

Employer Insights: What to Look for When You’re Looking

By Lisa Ganz

When I graduated from Vanderbilt in May 2013, I took a job in finance. It was a job I had basically signed on the dotted line for two years before when I was just 20 years old and received an internship offer at that company. The summer internship program was a feeder into a full-time job, and I was grateful to be gainfully employed 18 months before I was due to graduate. At the time, I remember thinking, “Wow, how could I turn this great opportunity down? What more could I ask for?”

When I found myself unhappy after a few months at that job and began actively looking for a new role, I had a much clearer understanding of what I wanted and went about my job search process in totally different way than I had a few years earlier. This time around, I was looking to jumpstart my career I wasn’t just looking for a job and looking for the following things helped me find that at AlphaSights.

1. A company that is disrupting an industry. It’s exciting to work for a company that is impacting human progress and has a unique business model that is different from any of its competitors. Every day at AlphaSights, I feel like I’m a part of something that is going to be huge, and the work I do empowers me.

2. People you want to work with. Work for a company that employs people you respect and who respect you, and one where you’ll be surrounded by people who challenge you to think. At AlphaSights, you build genuine relationships beyond just colleagues and it makes every day fun.

3. The company puts its people, not its bottom line, first. Happy employees lead to greater productivity and retention, which inadvertently leads to greater profit! So many companies I’ve worked for have lost sight of this simple fact. A paycheck can only go so far; look for a company where the leaders genuinely care about their employees’ wellbeing.

4. It fits your personality. Taking a job is a lot about fit. An employee sinking or swimming is often directly connected to whether the company is the right place for them. What is the office environment? Is it rara and collaborative, or more of an individualist mentality? Figure out what type of culture you want to be a part of.

5. You’re excited about the work. At AlphaSights, there aren’t enough hours in the day for all I need to get done, and I’m excited in the morning when I wake up to go to work. The work is stimulating and challenging. I drive my own projects and ideas, and I’m excited about what AlphaSights does at its core. We’re impacting human progress and spreading access to knowledge worldwide. Pretty cool, eh?

6. The company will help you grow professionally. Look for a company that invests in the growth of its people and gives them the skills to grow into management roles, or start their own companies. I learn something every day at AlphaSights. If I go on to do something else one day, I’m confident that I will be equipped with the skills to be successful in whatever I choose, and that’s due to AlphaSights’ investment in my growth.

7. Mobility both vertical and horizontal is promoted. Aim to work somewhere that promotes based on merit, and that encourages you to explore opportunities within the company. It’s not just about growing upwards; it’s also about growing into different roles where you can flex your skills sets.

8. Brings satisfaction. Working at AlphaSights has made both my professional and personal life fuller. We have merit bonuses and promotions; additionally, we have a quarterly awards ceremony to recognize people for different things, like being a great coach or being innovative.

It’s always motivating to reap the benefits of hard work.

9. Brings balance to life. Work should not only be challenging, but it should be fun. You want to work somewhere that respects your work life balance. At the end of the day, family and friends always come first. Life is too short to spend all your time behind a desk. Make sure your company lets you enjoy the ride too.
