Overall, it would appear that the market has definitely shifted to be less of an employer’s market and more of a job seeker’s market. So you may find the odds more favorable for job seekers now than they were 5 years ago in any industry. The financial industry is back to hiring more entry level talent into management training programs and while this will still be very competitive and employers are looking to hire the best of the best in these positions, you can see more openings. In addition to management training programs, the financial industry is hiring for sales professionals interested in becoming licensed and selling investments. There are probably many options out there right now for you!
