    Chardan is always looking for strong talent to join our team. We carefully review candidate resumes on an ongoing basis. 

    If your experience aligns with our needs, a member of our team will reach out to you. Our interview process starts with phone or Zoom interviews, followed by final round interviews where you will meet with multiple members of our team from across the organization - bankers, researchers, and sector leaders. Interviewers will evaluate your knowledge and experience and overall fit with our values and culture. Unfortunately, given the volume of applicants, we are not able to inform applicants that they are not selected for an initial interview.

    We are committed to cultivating a workplace that champions and amplifies diverse talent and representation across identities that have been historically missing from Wall Street and C-suite spaces. Our team is positioned for success because of the people of color, immigrants, marginalized genders, varied faiths, varied abilities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community within it. To those wondering if they are a cultural fit, if you share these values and commitments, then yes, you are.
