Wall Street lost more than 30,000 the start of the recession in December 2007, but firms are now looking for experienced executives with active client lists and a book of business, recruiters who toldĀ  CNNMoney.

[T]he latest employment numbers published by New York State revealed that the securities industry added 1,000 jobs during the month of December. This is worth noting since it’s rare for Wall Street firms to add jobs at the end of the year…

While up-and-coming investment firms like Greenhill & Co. and European financial firms like Deutsche Bank did most of the hiring last year, experts say larger institutions have also started to ramp up their recruitment efforts recently. Banks have also revved up efforts to hire in areas hit hard during the credit crisis, such as fixed income, sales and trading, as well as continuing to look for new workers in accounting and risk management businesses.

  1. I am glad Wall Street is starting to add jobs again! They posted a gain this December 2010 as well, and will hopefully be adding many more for the undergraduates and graduates entering their first careers.
