Who are we?
Hi, we're Calvin and Eli. We previously worked in quant finance as traders, and during that time read hundreds of resumes to help our firms recruit new hires. We also competed at the International Math Olympiad, directed the Harvard-MIT Math Tournament, and earned math degrees at MIT and UChicago. More recently, we started Brilliant to help math and science lovers learn cool stuff and get great jobs.
What is this?
Based on the strength of your resume, we can recommend you for interviews at a few firms we are partnered with, including:
We are adding 4 more partners for July 2017.
What is the process like?
Here's a testimonial from Jesse, whom we placed with Citadel:
Brilliant is great at providing opportunities to top-level trading firms. Their representative was quick to respond and got the job done in terms of connecting me with potential places. In the end, I actually accepted an offer from a firm (Citadel) that I was introduced to by Brilliant.
What happens after I upload my resume?
You'll usually hear back from us within a day. If your resume is a fit for one of our companies, we'll provide a recommendation. We only provide positive recommendations, and never say anything negative about our members.
Even if you don't get a recommendation, we'll read your resume and provide individual feedback on how to convey your skills in the best light. Here's an example of what that looks like.
Is it free?
Yes, this is a free service for members. We get paid by the firms for our recommendations, which is why we can keep both the course and this service free for members.
