Finance Students Keep Their Job Hopes Alive -

Finance Students Keep Their Job Hopes Alive -
"Financial companies shed 150,000 jobs last year and more than 100,000 so far this year, according to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, a national job placement company. Yet amid the downturn, applications to graduate business schools rose this year, as they have in other periods of uncertainty."

Anxious time for finance majors

Anxious time for finance majors:
"CLEVELAND -- With the meltdown on Wall Street, many finance majors are worried about whether they can find jobs when they graduate.

'I have at least one more year of college, so I hope it will get better, hopefully,' says Seth Woolfe, a CSU finance junior.

It may be harder to find internships for college students, especially paid internships.

'Before you might have had three job offers when you graduated, now you may have to settle for a satisfactory job, not your dream job,' says Alan Reichert, a CSU Finance Professor.

Finance is the second most popular major in the College of Business at CSU. There are about 300 finance majors."

Markets crimp plans of would-be investment bankers - The Boston Globe

Markets crimp plans of would-be investment bankers - The Boston Globe:
"There are still opportunities in finance,' said Bakewell, who ended up taking the summer spot under JPMorgan Chase. 'You can't just change your whole career path. I can't imagine trying to do a complete 180 just based on recent events.'

There were a few more jangled nerves in the immediate aftermath of the September turmoil that toppled the remaining independent investment banks. Faculty and administrators at numerous business schools describe their second-year MBA students in particular as stunned or even panicked initially.

Students are starting to accept the new reality, school officials say, although many are reviewing their options and looking at smaller firms in different areas or even at different fields."
