While unemployment rates have gradually improved in the years since the 2008 financial crisis, some of the bigger signs of recovery can be seen in the financial sector itself.
A recent undertaking on the part of Forbes and the online job search engine Indeed.com indicates that big banks in the United States are offering some of the most jobs of any other industry.
Forbes collaborated recently with Indeed.com and assessed the 20 largest bank-holding companies in terms of total assets, as of December 2012, according to the National Information Center, a repository of financial data and institution characteristics collected by the Federal Reserve System.
“The number of financial services and banking job postings changed little in 2012,” Michael Werch, an Indeed spokesperson, told Forbes. “With 182,313 job postings this January compared to 182,915 in January 2012, employer demand in the sector held steady over the last year.”
