There’s a global talent recruitment platform that connects private equity firms, alternative investment managers, hedge funds, and Fortune 500 companies with the best professional talent in the financial sector. Its name is GoBuyside, and it is a tech-enabled platform that’s transforming the traditional hiring process. Within the platform are applicant tracking systems and job boards in a closed-end network. They also utilize the mainstreaming of artificial intelligence to match prospective finance professionals with employers. Learn more about GoBuyside’s founder at

A great feature of GoBuyside is the ability for employers and applicants to network in their fields and have access to important and pertinent employment information. Applicants can access compensation reviews and receive notification of confidential job openings. The company has a stringent vetting process for applicants. Only the best candidates are selected for recommendation as GoBuyside is partnering with its clients’ goals to increase the value of their service.

Arjun Kapur founded GoBuyside roughly seven years ago after observing trends in job placement in the finance industry. After earning his MBA from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, he began thinking about how to find a superior method of matching businesses with finance professionals. He knew that superior client service would hold true for a company that provided the best prospects. At that time, both employers and applicants were faced with a significant deficit of transparency. Companies were drastically inconsistent in the way that they were approaching the talent pool. Arjun knew that there had to be a better option. Follow GoBuyside on Instagram.

GoBuyside launched in 2011 and it has grown to serve over 400 clients in 500 cities all over the world. They have carved out an interesting and innovative niche in the financial industry’s talent recruitment sector. Decentralization and the popularity of project-based positions and part-time work are changing the landscape of the hiring process. They have created a system that can respond to the coming changes in the acquisition of talent in the workforce. Their consulting services can fill any need at a significantly reduced cost. Being project-oriented has made them versatile and insightful. Additionally, they are at the forefront of technology in the field of recruitment and screening with their implementation of artificial intelligence.
