Echo Careers: who’s hiring

February 17, 2011

By Staff Reporter

The standard entry-level position at Bloomberg is in Global Customer Support. The company says it is looking for “smart, creative individuals” who come from “a variety of backgrounds including, but not limited to, business, finance and economics.” Fluency in more than one language is “definitely beneficial to a career at Bloomberg” as is at least a bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience.

Several opportunities are available with Fitch Ratings, the global rating agency that seeks to provide international credit markets with what it describes as “independent, timely and prospective credit opinions.” Positions that have become available at Fitch within the past two weeks include senior accountant, associate (ratings desk), and associate director/director (asset-backed securities). The senior accountant must have a BA in Accounting or Finance, and 1-3 years’ experience in public accounting. The ratings desk associate should have 1-3 years’ relevant experience. The company is looking for a “strong credit person with experience analyzing a variety of industries, companies and assets” for the asset-backed securities position.

Jobseekers who prefer to work through recruiters rather than through specific companies have a multitude of headhunting companies to choose from. However, both Analytic Recruiting and Drum Associates appear to have a particularly large number of positions available in New York at present. Analytic Recruiting works in all areas of business and — as its name suggests — specializes in positions that require strong analytical skills, while Drum Associates also works in many areas with particular emphasis on executive search and middle management recruitment.
