The new finance career playing field

To say the least, the landscape for finance job seekers has drastically changed.

Some of the largest finance employers have gone bankrupt, been acquired or, at best, are seriously ailing. Unless you've been hiding out in a cave somewhere for the past year and a half, you know that the credit crisis that began in summer 2007 has turned into a full blown financial crisis.

Companies have booked billions of losses and shed thousands of employees, meaning finance jobs are harder to come by than in years past. However, contrary to popular opinion, that doesn't mean finance positions aren't out there; they are, but they just might not be in the most obvious of places.
