For the un-invited, uninformed out there, I have just caught wind of yet another closed online network. This one has at least 300,000 members, and it is called doostang.com. (Yup, really.) All the information in this blog post was gleaned from the part of the website anyone can access, as I am currently not a Doostang member. But anyway, here’s what I’ve been able to determine: Doostang is a job recruitment website started at Harvard, Stanford, and MIT. I believe these quotes say it all:

“I will be going to NYC with Citigroup Private Equity. Thanks for setting up Doostang.” Luis Miguel Ochoa, Stanford Class of 2007

“I found my current Corp Dev position via Doostang. It’s my 2nd week here and I love it!” Roger, Bowdoin College
