Ex-Bankers: Worth a Look … Or the Hand?

After more than a year of hollowing out, at least some financial employers appear interested in refilling long-empty seats.

Yet many observers report those intrepid firms are much more interested in hiring away their rivals’ stars than in parsing the crowd of laid-off veterans itching to get back in the saddle.

Why do you think that is? Do today’s bankers-in-transition constitute the industry’s dead wood – the last people any hiring manager should consider when he needs talent?

  1. In that question, overqualified bankers should downgrade their profiles on their CV???

  2. This type of article is redundant. We know that 75% of laid off individuals were over the age of 45. So what’s new? The corporates are regenerating. What’s the point?


  3. There is a lot of knowledge and experience in the over 50s group. Look at all the successful Corporate giants, their top man is an experienced CEO with many years experience and in his 60s. Age does not matter if the knowledge and know is tere and the perosn is healthy. A good physical is what is required after the CVs have been dealt with.

  4. Talent at any age counts, knowing your business and having contacts as well as knowing how things function is what counts adding to the bottom line and knowing how to inspire is what counts. All these qualities can be at any age if the individual has them who cares whether he is 30 or 60 ? I wouldnt.
