LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 17, 2022 / In 2018, an Instagram account named Overheard on Wall Street ("OWS") crept into the feed by the hands of a small group of finance professionals looking for a space to share unique and exclusive commentary they would catch while working on Wall Street. In a matter of days, the account became a favorite for both seasoned and curious users who marveled at the conversations happening in finance sectors. Overheard on Wall Street managed to disrupt, agitate, and awaken the slumbers of the Street seemingly overnight, paving the way for a new generation of young (and sometimes old) professionals to open the floor for dynamic discussions that are often kept behind closed doors.
Since its unofficial launch, the Instagram account has evolved into a movement and lifestyle brand that serves as a primary resource for the same demographic that showed interest from the start. Today, both industry workers and passersby look to OWS as a launchpad for finance, economics, and business, and more recently, educational and professional development. The brand has introduced a collection of online courses designed to grow and polish existing workers, with plans to roll-out new courses over the next few months. Their flagship course is a comprehensive guide on private equity recruiting, meant for young investment bankers looking to break into the lucrative sector. It is delivered over 23 lessons and covers an array of topics including on-cycle versus off-cycle recruiting, interview questions, a financial modeling guide, sample recruiting tests, and detailed compensation data.
In tandem with their educational materials, OWS has also launched a new career board in partnership with Jobbio, a software company that streamlines the job hunt. On the OWS website, followers can turn to the new job board for better, stronger positions within the industry and other roles that often circulate by word-of-mouth alone. It's no secret that the turnover rate in finance markets is incredibly high, especially amongst younger professionals, and OWS's job board seeks to balance the scales and provide an additional level of clarity and confidence when conducting a new search.
Part of the enduring appeal of OWS is its youthful energy, which is peppered throughout their educational tools and career-building resources. Overheard On Wall Street began as an outlet for conversation, spurring a meme revolution on Instagram that took the finance world by storm.
The brand's flagship newsletter, "Short Squeez" is currently read by nearly 200,000 finance professionals across the globe. It provides a daily dose on major news from Wall Street to Silicon Valley. Their forthcoming podcast, currently in production, is slated for an early 2023 debut, and will feature young entrepreneurs and finance personalities making waves in their respective fields, wielding a distinctly fresh and fun energy to an otherwise dusty market.
Overheard On Wall Street speaks directly to the newest and most impactful generation of professionals today, creating opportunities and spaces for real growth in a notoriously closed-off industry. The brand's online courses, coupled with their career board through Jobbio, are transforming the enclaves of Wall Street in more ways than we realize. Offering a platform for open discussion and debate about the goings on in finance and beyond is certainly not a new concept, but the consistency and unabashed truthfulness behind Overheard On Wall Street is something to follow. When dealing with high finance matters, it helps to simply grab the bull by the horns.
Overheard On Wall Street is a finance media company. It started as a finance Instagram account in 2018, and has evolved into a primary outlet for education, career development, and smart discussions that pull back the curtains on modern finance, economics, and business for tomorrow's generations.
