Where to find Finance Jobs

If you are just out of school and looking into getting your first finance job, you might wonder where you should look for jobs in this field.

 

  • First, unlike most other industries, which openings are now mostly featured online, you can still find finance jobs in print classifieds and, you probably already guessed it, I'm talking about the Wall St journal, which is an institution for this inudstry. You can check finance magazines as well.
  • Then, I would look for employment sites specialized in finance jobs; For example, a site like Brokerhunter offers a job board that focuses on financial services jobs. Also visit Finance-related websites; while they might not be job boards, they usually feature an employment section that offers a few ads for finance positions.
  • Finally, I would check all the major online job boards such as Monster, Hotjobs and, of course, Employment 911.

Once you find a common denominator between all these job ads, you will get an idea of what keywords are important; the next step is to include them in your finance resume writing. Once you done that, customize your resume to each position, including your resume objective.
