I had the distinct pleasure of befriending Doug, and he easily stands out as one of the most passionate and amazing recruiters. His approach pulses with humility, interest in others, and most importantly unique insights about the industry unparalleled by others. Above all, Doug is a unifier of people who radiates kindness. He has an insatiable desire to learn about everything and anything, and selflessly help others find their perfect fit. If you have the chance of working with him please do (and attend one of his organ concerts)!

I had the pleasure of connecting with Douglas Tang earlier this year, and I can't express enough how invaluable his support has been throughout my career journey. Beyond his impressive professional knowledge and resources, Douglas stands out for his friendly and approachable demeanor.

From our initial conversation on LinkedIn, I immediately sensed that Douglas was more than just a headhunter; he was genuinely interested in helping me succeed. One of the remarkable things he did was helping me tailor my CV to showcase my strengths and skills effectively, a gesture that significantly boosted my confidence.

But where Douglas truly shines is in his ability to provide thoughtful advice for interview preparation. He didn't just give me standard interview tips; he took the time to understand my unique qualities and the specific requirements of each role I pursued. This personalized guidance made all the difference during my interviews.

What makes my experience with Douglas even more special is that it didn't end when I secured a role. We've developed a great friendship, and our conversations extend beyond the professional sphere. It's rare to find someone who not only helps you professionally but also becomes a genuine friend along the way.

In summary, Douglas is a remarkable professional who is not only exceptional at what he does but also brings a personal touch to his interactions. I'm incredibly grateful for his support and look forward to continuing our friendship in the future.

Douglas has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Within a short period of time he was able to introduce me to the field of quantitative finance, help me with my preparation, and land me my dream role! I can honestly say the trajectory of my life is all the better for having met and worked with him.

Before I started on my journey with Doug, I was inundated with inbounds from recruiters. The signal to noise ratio of these inbounds was truly terrible, especially in today's job climate.

Given I was working full time, I needed a way to generate high quality leads efficiently. On my first call with Doug, he promised that as a headhunter, he would be able to do exactly that for me. After having heard a similar speech from all the people I’ve spoken to in the talent space, I was dubious at first to say the least. But I was happily proven wrong!

After understanding my skills and interest, Doug was able to secure a manageable number of leads in roles I was really excited about. Most of these roles were not even listed on the company website - it felt as if they were tailored to my exact skillset and ambitions.

Over the course of several weeks, we strategized and iterated on these leads until they grew into several very attractive offers. I was blown away! I was able to land a role that had everything I wanted without having to compromise on any of my initially stated goals.

Throughout the whole process, Doug was only ever a phone call away. Given the intensity of the process and the competitive nature of the field, having regular catchups with him made all the difference, I wouldn’t have been nearly as well off had I gone it alone or with a more “run of the mill” recruitment service.

Good headhunters are (ironically) difficult to find. Rest assured that with Douglas, you have found a GREAT headhunter. I look forward to working with him again in the future!”

Work with Douglas has been a true honor. Initially, I was looking for new opportunities as a research analyst in the Crypto space after being laid off by Three Arrows Capital and was feeling a bit frustrated. Doug is a Quant hunter by trade, but he still assisted me in finding opportunities that fit my needs and preparing thoroughly for each interview.

Quite quickly, Doug began sending me high-quality leads. What really stood out to me about Doug was his attention to detail. Doug set aside time to check in with me every week, encouraged me to keep going, and gave me advice and encouragement before each interview.

With Doug's assistance, I was able to pinpoint my best attributes and put them in my resume. In addition, he gave me the resources I needed to begin my career in quantitative analysis.

Doug was there for me every week during the interview process to give me feedback and reassurance, even though it lasted for several weeks. His availability despite his busy schedule made the interview process more convenient.

To sum up, I am grateful for the opportunity to have met Doug, a wonderful human being. Finding someone like him is incredibly challenging, so I hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the near future.”

It has been a great experience working with Douglas this year. Doug connected me with several hedge funds and prop shops and helped me get my dream offer at my dream firm.

When I first spoke with Doug, I was actually a bit hesitated since Doug was partially a musician and partially headhunter. But after speaking with him a few more times, I denied myself and Doug was the ideal headhunter that I was looking for!

The most important reason is, unlike a majority of headhunters, Doug connects with the hiring team and hiring managers directly, so he knows what type of talents they want to hire. After providing me with a few firms, we finalized a list of jobs to begin with and Doug was able to get me through the interview process quickly.

Another reason that I enjoyed working with Doug is he worked very closely and tightly with me. Every time we got an update from the interview process, Doug quickly reached out to me to discuss the next steps. Even before the interview begins, he would suggest me with the potential topics of the interview and tell me the background of the firm and the interviewer. Moreover, this helped me with my procrastination by keeping me on the track of different interviews. Otherwise, I would have not had prepared anything before those interviews.

In addition, Doug is also a nice friend to chat with. After my job hunting, we also had catchups routinely. He shared his concert video with me and it was really good. I look forward to go to his concert in person!”

Douglas was recommended to me as a headhunter with top tier resources and ability. I was at first very intrigued with his unique life experiences and therefore had a good first impression of him. Later this impression was confirmed by our interactions.

Douglas has been extremely straightforward with me from the start; he briefed me on what the top quant funds are looking for and how one should maneuver himself to get there. He sent me very on-point materials for interview preparation. Since I had been researching this topic on my own for months, I can fully appreciate the value of his study materials.

I have had horrific experience with headhunters before. It was always clear to me that they operate with their interest as priority and would sacrifice mine when needed. Douglas surprised me by making the client's interest his priority, which showed through salary negotiation in particular.

On top of all this, Douglas has very interesting personalities. I look forward to meeting him in person.”
