Three Wall Street Firms Hiring Now


And one firm that will be hiring shortly. Job seekers need to look beyond the big banks and financial institutions.

MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL Many talented individuals are getting hired on Wall Street. But while it is great to hear that others are doing well, the first thing every job seeker wants to know is this:

"How can I be one of them?"

The answer is not easy. But job seekers can start by exploring more than just the big banks and financial institutions.

PerTrac, a provider of analytics, reporting and communications software for investment professionals, is currently looking to fill an entry-level position in Manhattan.

"We want a four-year degree," Anne Bass, Human Resources Administrator at PerTrac, told StreetID. "[The] entry-level sales position [involves] little to no travel. This is primarily a cold-calling position. You must learn to excel at finding new opportunities through cold-calling. You should have excellent analytic and listening skills -- transferrable skills that you can bring to this role, [as well as] a strong work ethic."

Bass said that the firm looks for candidates who have a "competitive and driven personality."

"You must be highly motivated and willing to accept tough coaching and be held accountable to the agreed upon goals," she said, adding that you should have a "stated a desire to become a highly successful and accomplished sales professional."

"We need folks that can be in a fairly diverse setting. Knowledge of financial markets is a plus. Salary is negotiable depending on the employee."

PerTrac is also looking for a software engineer in Reno, Nevada. "The software engineer position is one we pretty much leave on [the site] year-round," said Bass. "We have doubled our developers. I don't know where they put everybody that works in Reno. The building is almost full."

After going through the resumes, Bass will send an assessment test to prospective candidates. "It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to do that," she said. "When I get the assessment back, if it says 'yes' -- or even if it says 'no' and I feel strongly about the person -- then there will be a phone interview. After the phone interview there will be an in-person interview."

In addition to PerTrac, New York-based Schultze Asset Management, which is a special situation investing firm, is hiring a Junior Trader. The full list of qualifications has been posted on the company's website, but in general the company is simply looking for a talented individual.

"I think we look for team players who want to do well if our clients do well," said George Schultze, Managing Member at Schultze Asset Management. "We're looking for smart people. I think we're close to hiring someone, but the position is still open. We have not hired anyone yet."
