Hedge fund jobs are in high demand, many MBA graduates and experienced financial professionals now are looking for ways into the hedge fund industry. If you are looking around at hedge fund jobs let me know. I have received a few notices from Hedge Funds looking to fill open hedge fund jobs and I know of a few recruiters that you might want to be speaking with.

I often get email questions about how to prepare a resume for a hedge fund job interview. What is the perfect hedge fund resume for hedge fund jobs? There isn't one. While not the case, some hedge fund professionals never graduate from high school but make over $1m/year in their job trading or selling for a hedge fund. That said, some of the below factors are a few of what can help land you hedge fund jobs:
  • Quantitative experience and abilities
  • CFA, CHP, or CAIA designation
  • Education - Ivy league, MBA, Quant focused PhD
  • Signs of loyalty, passion, and being humble
  • Something Extra such as PR expertise, asset gathering ability, or Information Advantage
  • High quality names from your last few hedge fund jobs - large wirehouse experience
  • How much money did you personally bring in to the firm or make for the firm?
  • A stomach for a high commission/bonus structure
One highly successful hedge fund manager said that they don't have any hard and fast experience requirements while filling their open hedge fund jobs, they simply look for people who are hungry, humble, and smart.
