Fixed Income PM/BA
Ref No.: 18-00189
Location: New Jersey
Position Type:Direct Placement

I heard from Sue Dougan, Sr VP at Pru's Fixed Income Asset Management group. We have placed her entire team at the Manager, Director & VP levels and she has trust in our assessment. There are two roles, one job description: VP and Manager. We have filled  both of these roles in the past. At the VP level: Jo-Ann DiSantis and at the Manager level: Julie Chernavsky. They should  both be in the system.
What the Sr VP wants is a very polished professional: well educated, seriously solid Technical PM/BA capable to run projects. Very, very good listening skills with proven ability to arrive at solutions. As a part of our assessment, she wants us to ask the candidates to describe the mission of a related project through solution.  This should be something they can do in a professional manner; succinct and interesting.
I have attached the resume of a candidate the Sr VP was very interested in and who could not continue the process due to relo issues. This one was at the VP level. I have no idea who this is and she sanitized it completely, but hopefully its helpful.
Here's the job description below. Please remove the company name if you send it out…thanks.
VP level: $175 – 185K Base, 40% Bonus
