Hi, I have solid experience in Project Finance, but my firm calls the dept as Structured Finance. About two weeks ago, I applied to ain the valuation group, and I got the interview. The interviewer started to look at my resume on the spot, and we started to chat. During the interivew process, I implicitly discovered that the interviewer thought my role in structured finance , CLO, asset-backed securities, etc. But in reality, I've been doing project finance work, such as due dilligence, cash flow modeling, research, credit paper, etc. and my resume clearly described those responsibilities. Well, obviously, I didn't get the job. My questions are the followings:
1) Confusion about my role - whose fault is it? mine or KPMG? Wouldn't that be silly for KPMG to just scan for keywords and not read the resume before inviting the candidate for interview? And obviously, my resume doesn't have any words like CDO, CLO, and, but it did have the word, valuation in my places.
2) What can I do moving forward to prevent such confusion?
3) Why does the industry call SF and PF interchangeably?
