News from The Financial Services Industry Wants You! – Huffington Post:

Have you struggled to break into the financial services job market? The finance industry is actively seeking military talent due to their maturity, professionalism, and problem-solving abilities. Veterans on Wall Street can help you switch careers.

Veterans on Wall Street (VOWS) matches vets with career and business opportunities in the financial services industry through its partnership with Bank of America, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, and Goldman Sachs and its annual career fair. You can attend the career fair to find jobs, or simply to network and learn about the industry.

Last year, more than 1,500 veterans and military spouses attended, and 154 were directly hired. The 2012 fair was held on June 21st as part of the Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring Our Heroes initiative with approximately 500 vets in attendance and recruiters from financial services firms.

Not all finance jobs are front office positions (sales, trading, and mergers and acquisitions). Banks are hiring back office functions as well, such as operations and IT. Back office positions do not necessarily require a college degree.

“The idea is  pretty simple — don’t live above your means. Don’t buy a big house if you’re not going to use every room in it. Don’t buy a bunch of cars you’ll never use.”

To help kick things off in true H-Town fashion, The Drake rolled out the red carpet Friday night for celebration that included area musicians like Baby Bash (“
