Industry Profile: Banking & Finance

Banking and finance openings have always been JobsDB SG's top jobs. Yes, ever since the site's humble establishment. It's quite understandable why. People bite good old "B & F" because banking jobs come with good compensation and such jobs offer a steady career growth which, as you know, is the key to achieve great career prospects. You could say that having a finance job is a dream come true and nobody would disagree -- after all, a job in bank is one that satisfies a person not only personally but also materially.

There are countless of entities that offer jobs under the industry of banking and finance -- that's another reason behind the industry's withstanding superiority in our database. National banks in Singapore are very competitive, FYI. They are giving international players great competition.

And now that the economy is on its way to stability, we are pretty sure that there will be more finance careers to be added in our database in the future. We have plenty of clients in said industry -- DBS and Standard Chartered are just two. Banking fresh graduates have a very bright future ahead of them, really.

Job seekers are free to explore many different functions in the industry of banks -- that's another plus about B&F. Some of the many job functions in this industry include Analyst, Corporate Finance, Trading, Investment, Loan, and Retail Banking.

Looking for banking career advice? We interviewed Mr Philip Lim, Managing Director & Head - DBS Franchise & DBS Strategy (Consumer Banking) for Industry Focus and here's what he shared to us: “Like any other job, you must have an interest in it in order to do well. So if you’re interested in a banking job, you should apply for it. One shouldn’t be scared of rejection for it is part and parcel of life. When you become a Customer Service Representative or a Relationship Manager, I’m sure that you’ll face plenty of rejections and complaints from your customers. Working in this industry will quicken your maturity. At the end of two years with us, I’m sure you’ll emerge as a better person.”
