Job Recruiting

I'm pasting below an e-mail that we recently received in the Dept. of Spanish, Italian & Portuguese.

Subject: Opportunities with the D. E. Shaw group

I wanted to be sure to let you know that the D. E. Shaw group invites UIUC students to apply for a position with the firm. In an effort to ensure we're reaching all interested undergraduate and graduate students, I was hoping you might be able to pass along the email below. I've included details about the firm, as well as information on how to apply for an interview. If you have the chance, please forward this message on to students in the Department of Spanish, Italian & Portuguese.

Thanks so much for your help.

Sincerely, Bhandavi Chandrashekar

[Subject line:] Opportunities with the D. E. Shaw group

We would like to invite all interested UIUC students to apply for positions with our firm. Headquartered in New York City, the D. E. Shaw group is a highly successful investment and technology development firm, with a team that comes from a wide range of backgrounds. A robotics guru. A pro snowboarder. An operatic mezzo-soprano. And a lot of people who excel in subjects ranging from art history and literature to math and CS. They're not conventional "financial types," but then again, neither are we. For more information on current openings, please log on to I-Link.

For all positions, you may also apply anytime by sending a resume and cover letter to The D. E. Shaw group makes a conscious effort to seek out and recruit individuals sharing a history of impressive intellectual or professional achievement. Current employees include a U.S. Women's Chess Champion, a Jeopardy! winner, a World Scrabble Champion, and winners of more than 20 International Math Olympiad medals. Our employees include a number of professional athletes and accomplished artists, and approximately 20% are published authors in genres ranging from academic papers to memoirs and mystery novels. While we certainly welcome applications from individuals with a background or interest in mathematics, computer science, or economics, we are equally interested in speaking with brilliant liberal arts graduates, regardless of major, who are open to the possibility of a career they may never have previously considered. Our work environment is challenging but surprisingly flexible-from the clothes you wear to the time you get to the office, it's pretty much up to you. And we compensate our extraordinary people extraordinarily well.

Sincerely, Strategic Growth. The D. E. Shaw group
