Good news! Economists have stated recently that the financial markets are rebounding! Finance is one of the most lucrative industries in the world and has started growing at a rapid rate. Many young college graduates and people switching careers are flocking to financial jobs in hopes of jumping into a career that will last a lifetime. But where exactly are they going?
At first glance, you’d think of the most obvious place: Wall Street. The New York Stock Exchange along with other key players in the financial world reside in New York. But with rising costs of living and housing prices, companies are flocking to other parts of the U.S to set up offices. And one of those locations is here in Phoenix. Below is a sample of companies in the financial industry that you can find here in Phoenix.
It’s a People Thing—Insurance Companies
With an increase in population here in the Phoenix Valley, insurance companies are headed to Phoenix to recruit. One of the newest providers to hit the Phoenix area is State Farm. Located in Tempe, State Farm has opened up a huge office building that has attracted individuals looking to start a career in a growing company.
State Farm isn’t the only insurance company setting up shop here. Small, independent offices are opening up across the valley. These companies are in the areas of life insurance, health insurance, and property/casualty insurance. Whether you want to start a career with one of the big guys or work as an independent agent, Phoenix has a lot to offer.
It’s an Arizona Thing—Charles Schwab
Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, the Charles Schwab Corporation is no stranger to Arizona. Just visit their location in the Biltmore area, filled with over 500 employees. This financial firm has been known for hiring job seekers who have excellent customer service skills and a desire to learn the world of investing. The culture within the Schwab community has been known for being very inclusive with several opportunities for growth and advancement.
Moving Out West—Vanguard
Similar to Charles Schwab, Vanguard Corporation set up a location here in Phoenix, even though the company’s main office is headed in Pennsylvania. Like other East Coast based companies, Vanguard came to Scottsdale because of the stellar weather and the growing population. This company is a great place to work for anyone who wants to advance quickly. Vanguard is known for helping their employees get the most out of their workday and helping them learn skills for both inside and outside the financial industry.
