As the banking industry emerges from the financial crisis, the outlook for banking employment is mixed.
Some banking career niches prospered during the housing crash. Companies that specialize in defaulted mortgages will continue to offer servicing jobs until the real estate market recovers. While interest rates remain at record lows, loan officers jobs and loan processors jobs will continue to open.
With regulators putting bank reforms in place, compliance employment should rise, especially for those with Basel credit standards or Dodd-Frank experience. Jobs for legal professionals with experience defending lawsuits filed against banks by consumers or regulators should continue to be plentiful as well.
