Dear SpringBoard Friend,

SpringBoard TM invites you to “the Interview Pitfalls” 2015 – its interview skills seminar, helmed by fund manager Yoman and experienced mutual fund analyst Ruishan. Both speakers have had personal in-depth experience dealing with front office hiring managers, both on and off the SpringBoard platform. They will address questions on the front office interview, from key issues to debunking myths and minute details. 

Initially reserved for a select group of SpringBoard interns, the seminar is now open to SpringBoard friends who want to overcome the interview hurdle towards securing a front office career.

What you should expect: You will improve on your next interview performance from the Interview Pitfalls, as SpringBoard shares case studies of how SpringBoard interns have impressed or disappointed our employer partners.

What SpringBoard expects: More work, more learn and gain. Pls come with questions about interviews you attended or are attending, to benefit from the seminar.

1900 – 1930 Ruishan shares about interview techniques and skills on how to handle the interview, including common mistakes made by interviewees

 Speakers’ Profile

Yoman, co-founder and partner of SpringBoard Talent Management LLP

Yoman has more than 8 years of experience in the industry. He builds bridges with key senior managers, so that SpringBoard may send its top apprentices over to intern and eventually be hired or referred to a front office position. Since 2009, many successful stories have returned to serve SpringBoard’s ever growing network of front office professionals. Yoman has since grown to be their informal “ringleader”.

Ruishan, analyst at a large mutual fund

Ruishan has more than 5 years of experience in the industry.  She accumulated a wealth of experience in the CV writing and job interviews, having gone through numerous resume iterations and more than 50 interviews in order to clinch a highly coveted job after college.  These skills helped immensely when she sought a career switch and was offered an equity research position within 3 months of applying online for the role.

Thank you.

Cheers, Yeoh Eng Yew
