Even as the financial services industry is heading for a “slow bleed” of jobs, EmploymentCrossing has found 125,000 active job openings.



Jobs in the financial services continue to be one of our top categories in terms of job openings.

EmploymentCrossing.com has found 125,000 job openings in the financial services industry even as talk continues of a “continued slow bleed”.

Meredith Whitney, a banking analyst and CEO of the Meredith Whitney Advisory Group, in a Bloomberg Television interview has said that the job cuts on Wall Street will continue to be “stealth cuts”. The industry has eliminated hundreds of thousands of positions in recent years according to Whitney and although there still exists some growth, for most of the companies it is an anemic growth environment.

Job research website EmploymentCrossing.com however believes that there are still many opportunities for people working in the financial services industry since it tracks job openings from multiple sources – employer websites, industry publications and niche job boards among others.

CEO Harrison Barnes says on the subject, “Jobs in the financial services continue to be one of our top categories in terms of job openings. The sector has stayed in the top ten spot for the last six months.”

Another encouraging sign for Americans is that the layoff rate has fallen slightly. Layoffs by employers fell by 23 percent month-over-month in April 2013. In March 49,255 employees were laid off and in April the figure was 38,121.
