HF Resume Announcement: WSO has released a hedge fund resume template for Experienced Professionals with Deal Experience!:

Click here for the free investment banking resume template for college students.

Just like our PE resume template, this resume is for pros with deal experience coming from Investment Banking, management consulting or other project/transaction based work.

As I mentioned earlier in the week when we released the investment banking resume template for undergraduates, we think the WSO templates give you a lot more flexibility on spacing.

As a reminder, the bullets in this template are just placeholders and are NOT what we would consider "top-notch" bullets.

This is very similar to the hedge fund resume template we use in all of our the WSO resume reviews with experienced buyside professionals.

This particular HF resume sample is for experienced hires, not college students. That's all for now!

ps - please feel free to pass the word along to your friends in banking or other finance positions that are targeting hedge funds

pps - remember, if you are looking for real HF professionals to help with your wording and bullets and tough decisions on what to cut and what to keep, check out our industry leading resume editing service

I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.

sooo any news on when the HF prep pack will be available?

I imagine it could be a bit more difficult to throw together with a bunch of different strategies, but starting with prep for L/S and then expanding out to credit, distressed, macro, etc. could work. Happy to proof and edit for a free copy ;)


Ha, yes, much more difficult. I am still looking for an author / authors that would be able to put not just a description of the strategies, but also do several case studies under each to really make it valuable for interviews.

Right now, focusing on finishing the PE Prep Pack and then I will pick up the search again for author/s on the HF Prep Pack. won't be easy...so timing is ??? right now


Thanks for this! Couple questions:

1) I noticed that this template has 'Work Experience' take up about half the space and college activities are still highlighted. What's the reasoning behind that? I'm a first year analyst in IB and have seen other templates with 2/3 the space on 'Work Experience' and Leadership + Education condensed into one section. However, given that recruiting starts 6 months or less into the job (less than that in my case), I haven't had much transactional experience at my 2nd-tier bank, so a format including college activities makes sense to me. Is the reason for this spacing related to how early recruiting is, or other factors?

2) If you were a summer analyst at your current bank, would you suggest collapsing that into 1 'Work Experience'? If so, would you list your start date as the start of your summer internship and write 'Summer Analyst & Full-time Analyst' as your role?


hey, questions probably best left for a professional reviewer in your target industry: http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/wso-finance-resume-...
but in general:

  1. it's just a formatting template...you shouldn't read as much into the length of each sentence or the content
  2. depends how good your other stuff is and how much space you need for other stuff...so again, it depends on the candidate :-)

How are some of these people even human lol. These resume templates always leave me feeling like MS whenever I read them.

Absolute truths don't exist... celebrated opinions do.
