Career Placement Director
Sara Tomeo joined in February 2017 as the Career Placement Director for the NYU Tandon MS of Financial Engineering Program (MSFE) with a blend of recruitment and placement experience.
A Rutgers University graduate, Sara most recently worked as the Associate Director of Industry Relations with a New York based MFE program. There, she partnered closely with industry firms in order to provide recruitment opportunities to job-seeking students and worked with students on all aspects of career and interview readiness.
Prior to this, Sara spent six years working in Recruiting at Morgan Stanley, most recently managing the firm's Quantitative Finance Campus Recruitment Program. During her time supporting Quant Finance, the program saw tremendous growth in the size and quality of the Quant campus programs and recruiting efforts. She focused heavily on building out special efforts for the program, such as the Women's PhD Quant Finance Mentorship Program, and the Prize for Excellence in Financial Markets contest. These initiatives became key branding efforts and hiring pipelines for the MS Quant Analyst and Associate programs.
Sara currently works with students and industry partners alike on career preparation and recruitment to ensure a favorable employment outcome for the students of FRE.
