Dogfinance organizes Finance Happy Hour in London

Yesterday evening occurred an interesting event in the Neo Barbican in London. Entitled the “Finance Happy Hour”, the event promised to be a key networking opportunity for Dogfinance members; professionals, recruiters, and students alike.

The ones who ventured to go to the relaxed environment of the Neo Barbican, had the opportunity to exchange ideas, meet interesting people and start developing a professional financial network over a drink. The Finance Happy Hour is the english version of a previous pioneer event, happening in France, called the Apéro Finance in Paris. Both happenings have as their main goal to provide Dogfinance members, both professionals looking for opportunities and recruiters alike, with an opportunity to widen their connections. The event was open to curious people not yet familiar with the social network.

The “Finance Happy Hour”  was thus organized by  Dogfinance an online social networking and job platform for both job seekers at all levels who are looking for finance-related job offers,  and employers and recruiters looking for new talent. The platform enables members to apply for a wide variety of positions, spanning from multinational companies such as Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Allainz, BNP Paribas to many other smaller firms. The site also offers online CV advice and provides users with interesting editorial content such as interviews with young professionals. Dogfinance has also another rather unique quality: it filters the job adds by level of wage and offers the financial jobs seekers, personal assistance over the phone, concerning their job hunting.

The platform has grown considerably, currently having  more than 170,000 members with an average of 250,000 visitors per month. and with circa 400 new members every day. The site is owned by  Société Carrevolutis which precisely specializes in recruitment and advice.

Dogfinance was founded in 2009 by three graduates from the ESGF school of finance, and is considered to be the first site of recruitment just tailored to the financial sector. The event of yesterday is part of a plan aiming now to expand the network to other markets, such as the UK one.
