Default Banking jobs in the US

Hi, i know that i'm jumping the gun a little as i dont have my visa interview until next month but i'm just wondering if anyone can recommend any good banking job sites in Texas, we'll (hopefully) be living in Arlington. I've been an investment banker for 23 years and am wanting to either continue with that or get some experience with Accounting mainly Taxes. Firstly, can anyone recommend any good banking sites? Assuming all goes well next month with the interview, i'm hoping to be in work in the US in the next few months. Fingers crossed. Any advice would be great! Thanks!

Google and then banks' web sites are your best bet. FDIC is a good source to work a geographic market. Let me know if you need help.
Investment banker is a grey cat. It can range from a desk in a bank lobby to managing national accounts. Where do you fit in? Without a book of business or US experience and knowledge of banking laws/regulations it will be hard. Dito tax work. Do you have an accounting degree with concentration taxation?

I'm just Flabergasted people want to STILL move to this place (well I live in Los Angeles which I can slightly handle most of the time. Texas I could not handle). If you don't love guns, Oil, and pollution spewing giant 8 cylinders SUV's you better keep it to yourself.) Bank Sites? The average American despises the 4 or 6 biggest ones right now as they try to increase most of their customers Credit Card APR's to 29.99 before a strict new law goes into effect in February which strongly regulates the Bank's credit cards - something new for them - regulation, . It's a joke - we hate all the greedy b*stards right now - blowbacks gonna be a b*tch, it's coming - watch for it. !!! Check out -

Don't overlook the obvious sites like monster.com where you can filter for location.

Investment banking may be tough to break into as a "foreigner" but with a bit of creativity, you can probably use your background to your advantage for other sorts of jobs in the finance and accounting area.

If you have no experience with US taxes, you may want to look around when you get to Texas for something called the VITA tax assistance program. It's a volunteer program providing tax assistance to individuals - but the training program is free (usually offered in the fall or early winter) and would give you a good grounding in personal income tax.

Or, look around for community or junior colleges that offer tax classes as part of their continuing education program. These are usually not too expensive and can get you started in the basics of US taxation - and the classes are often given in the evenings and on weekends, so you can work (or job hunt) and go to school at the same time.
Cheers,
Bev

Thanks for all the advice Bev, with all the feed back on banking i think i really need to get into something else. I never knew i'd see the day that being a banker was a dirty word...

With your background in banking, you may want to take a look at some of the larger not-for-profits in the area. If they've got endowments or a good sized fund raising mechanism, they often like to have people with banking experience to look after their money. It won't pay like the banks, but it can be a real interesting way to earn a living.
Cheers,
Bev

Memory is not what it used to be:>) You are in operations and there very specialized. It will be very difficult to land in your area in TX. Be flexible. Get your foot in the door first.
