Head for figures?
Financial firms are hiring. Banks—insurers—putting people on.
Banks are not going anyplace—people are using more credit cards—mortgage businesses are even expanding (Chase).
Here in Phoenix, Wells Fargo (we call it Smells Fargo) is adding hundreds of tellers.
Also here, American Express is adding.
Check out USAA, too—they cater to military families. If you are a vet, that could be a leg up.
And State Farm is on an uptick.
When you get to these websites, don’t go directly to jobs—check their press releases, about us sections—learn more.
Customize your materials to the job descriptions.
Above all, follow instructions. They are just WAITING to discard people who don’t.
