I have passed all levels of CFA exam and have total experience of 3 years in financial advisory. Currently I am working in one of Big 4 firms in its deals department. At this stage I am looking for a move to middle east from Pakistan. I have tried to contact many CEOs through Linkedin but the response rate has been very minimal. I have applied through recruitment websites (like bayt, gulftalent) but there has not been much of success.
I have been applying rigorously for about a month and have not even got a single interview.
I will be really grateful if anyone out there can guide me:
How to make up this move? How to pursue my search?
Which market do you think is best for me in term sof getting an opportunity and where I can enter easily?
Kindly guide me.Any help would be highly appreciated.
this is like the 3rd time youve posted this thread and the responses have always been the same- contacting CEOs on linkedin probably isnt going to work well
oh no… not the “URGENT!!!” posters, again…
Forget the naysayers; I will help you.
It is very easy to get a high-paying job in U.S. – all you have to do when you email the CEOs through LinkedIn is conform to the following rules about letter content:
Stop using “URGENT URGENT URGENT” in the subject lines like some angrily-blinking answering machine light.
Don’t use so many exclamation points and “…” sequences during construction of run-on sentences.
“Guyz” is not a word. Also, “lolz” is not considered good form in business communications.
Do not reference any participation in the CFA or any other test-taking endeavor by using any of the following words, or sentences that sound remotely like any of the following, to describe progress:
- “I gave Level 1 last June at the Hyderabad testing station.”
- “I wrote Level 2 last June at the Karachi government testing facility.”
- “I was delighted to learn that I cleared Level 1 last December.”
- “Please advise,” or WORSE, “please advice.”
- “…and I would like to ask about the same.”
If you follow these really simple rules, I am confident that you will land that job in no time flat. Good luck.
More URGENT threads please.
