Haas in New York City and Boston: Haas Alumni Make
Ruthanne Feinberg, MBA 01

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,"
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."
