Houston Rockets job openings
Houston Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin and his teammates may get an assist from Wall Street in their quest for a National Basketball Association championship.
General Manager Daryl Morey, a 40-year-old statistical analysis devotee, is seeking to fill two vacancies in his basketball operations department: an analyst and an intern. The team has received more than 1,100 resumes, about 20 percent from people working in finance.
“Wall Street folks are great at forecasting, at using objective evidence in decision making,” Morey, who holds a Master of Business Administration from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said in a telephone interview. “And they’re often overworked and miserable. The smart ones figure out it might not be worth it.”
