NYC Financial Services Professionals Opportunity

Normally I don't write about jobs. This is a blog about small business financing and related management issues. However, the opportunity listed below may help some service professionals transition into working as CFO or Controllers for small to medium businesses. So this may also be a recruiting opportunity for small business owners. The graduates of this program will have made the transition from corporate worker to small business employee, which could be highly beneficial to owners on the hunt for financial talent. This was posted on a group discussion I belong to and I thought it was worthwhile to pass it along.

JumpStart NYC - a unique program for Financial Services Professionals who have lost their jobs.

JumpStart NYC is now accepting applications for its unique program for unemployed NYC residents who previously worked in the Financial Services sector.

BACKGROUND: JumpStart NYC is a free educational program to help former financial services workers find new jobs by re-tooling them to either work at smaller firms and/or in new industries. The program includes both a week-long “boot camp” classroom component (with a second, optional week exploring Green Finance and Technologies), and a 10-week action-learning project in a NYC business. Participation is completely free.

Please see below for the dates for the next JumpStart NYC session. RSVP for the information session at: or at . You can also learn more about this program and submit your application via the latter link. Applications will be accepted on a rolling “first-come, first-served” basis.
