Haas in New York City and Boston: Haas Alumni Make Their Mark

New York

As formidable as New York initially seemed to Bay Area native Ruthanne Feinberg, this recent Haas graduate has surprisingly found the Big Apple a "better place for a rookie recruiter to succeed" than San Francisco. "The economy has become so much stronger in the East over the past two years that it's easier to get a job here right out of school," she says.

Feinberg, who hails from an extended family of Cal alumni, happened upon New York by accident when she enlisted in a two-month executive recruiting training program there. While in Manhattan, a series of opportunities opened up and Feinberg decided to stay, eventually heading up a division of the recruiting firm Glocap. Now fully ensconced in her professional and social networks, she also helps interview prospective students for Haas and serves as a frequent point person for alums who are new to the city. "The number of us out here is increasing, and that's exciting," says Feinberg, who also partakes of cultural extracurriculars such as improvisation classes and film festival planning. "There's so much to do here that you could be out until 3:00 a.m. every morning," she says. "New York is like San Francisco on steroids."
