10 Best Cities for Jobs in Financial Services: 2014 | ThinkAdvisor by Dan Berman
The economy might be on the upswing, but it’s still not easy to find a job. For the fourth year in a row, Accounting Principals released its list of the top cities to find financial services jobs.
Several factors made 2014 a better year than 2013 for job hunters in the sector (and overall, with the U.S. unemployment rate at 6.1%). Accounting Principals used employment data from its branch offices to compile its list.
“The growth of the technology industry has had a positive impact on the industry, with finance jobs becoming increasingly available in non-financial firms and attracting people with niche backgrounds,” said Jodi Chavez, senior vice president at Accounting Principals in a statement.
