Checking Employment Trends: Mortgages, Banking, and Collections

Interesting to check what’s happening live in various employment sectors, at least as measured by recruiting efforts. You can get a good first cut on that data via SimplyHired, a job search engine that has a nice feature making it easy to look at sectoral trends.

Here are results in some key employment sectors of note, all of which are down year-over-year — except for the last one.

Loan officer: Down 54%

Investment banking: Down 45%

Mortgage broker: Down 61%

 Collections officer: Up 12%
