If you’re looking for a new financial services job and you want an immediate response, then you might want to avoid private equity, which attracts a huge overabundance of candidates. Instead, why not focus your search on the jobs banks can’t seem to fill, especially if you have a niche skill-set?
Based on banks’ own job sites, we’ve assembled a list of jobs in New York that have been advertised for at least two or three months, although some have been vacant for as many as five. If you apply for any these roles and you fit the prerequisites, then you can be assured that the bank will get back to you. The only downside is that you may not fit the requirements – there’s a reason these roles have remained unfilled for so long.
1. Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs is hiring a structurer and a capital markets associate for the real estate financing group (REFG) within the IBD in New York, despite the fact that the majority of that group is based in Irving, Texas.
Successful candidates will work on the bank’s commercial mortgage platform and be trained for a wider set of FINRA licenses than other associate-level IBD financing group analysts. Translation? You’ll have to pass the Series 7, Series 79 and Series 63 exams.
