Hey Phil- 
I'm about to send this to edebate. I'm assuming I'll get bounced or filtered as a non-subscriber, so if you could send this along to give me posting privileges at this address that would be much appreciated.

Re: Great Job Opportunity In Finance for Fall 2008 
Wanted pass along a job description for an analyst position at the fund I'm working at in Boston--Sankaty Advisors, the debt fund at Bain Capital. We are currently looking to fill between 1 and 3 positions with either new graduates or people with 1-3 years work experience. 
The description (below and attached) may not mean much to you but at it's core working at Sankaty is an opportunity to: 
-Work at one of the nation's leading investment firms, in one of the market's highest regarded debt funds; 
-Learn about business problems and market dynamics in a hands on way, and put the skills you learn to work in the form of large investments; 
-Capitalize on your research skills to develop investment ideas and strategies, while becoming an expert on a particular industry (I cover healthcare, others include energy, autos, media/technology, etc); and 
-Get a foothold in a industry that folks with alternative backgrounds often have trouble entering. 
No business or finance experience is required--though strong quantitative skills are big plus--and we are very open to people with alternative backgrounds. 
If you're interested in a position send me a resume at this address. Feel free to pass it along to friends (even non-debaters) as well. Also, I'll likely stop by the Harvard tournament next weekend, so if you want to chat about the job, why going into finance is much better than going into law, etc give me a heads up and I'll make sure you track you down.
