									New York Financial Jobs Declining But Opportunities Exist Elsewhere
Financial jobs have declined in New York but have increased in availability in other states,
according to
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) October 13, 2012 -- According to a new report released by New York State
comptroller, Thomas DiNapoli, the securities industry is declining in the state, despite the fact that Wall Street
income and the available jobs market is increasing by the day.

The securities business is still thriving for those who are employed in the industry. The average salary for those
employed in New York increased by 16.6 percent between 2009 and 2011. Likewise, securities and finance
jobs accounted for 169,000 positions created in August. However, this was a loss of 1,200 positions since the
previous year in this sector. All in all, the market is good for those currently employed in it but dire for those
looking for new work.

The solution may be to look for work elsewhere. These New York jobs are typically thought of as the holy grail
of finance but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other opportunities in other states.

According to A. Harrison Barnes, CEO of, a job search engine, finance jobs are still readily
available in other places. “We’re seeing a big increase in these job listings in California,” he says, “with nearly
800 positions listed for the state.” There are only 37 positions listed for New York at the moment, which is a
definite indicator of the poor performance of the financial industry as a whole in the state.

Wall Street lost over 20,000 jobs since the start of the financial crisis in 2007. This is all the more reason to
look for work in the financial sector anywhere else than New York. believes there is a financial
business market out there but finding employment requires thinking outside the Wall Street box. “Financial jobs
are performing well,” says Barnes, “New York just doesn’t appear to be the hub of activity anymore.”
