The economy is finally growing and many people in the financial field are looking to 2017 as the year when they advance their careers and achieve greater professional success. If you are interested in taking advantage of new opportunities in a new year, you may be thinking about looking for a new financial job. The question is, where can you find one?
There are a number of places to look to take your financial career to the next level by finding a great new job in 2017. Here are four places that should be at the top of your list when it comes to focusing your job hunt.
Your personal and professional network
You can tap into your online and in-person networks to explore job opportunities, find out who is hiring, and get a personal introduction. Let your friends, former co-workers and even your alumni office from your school know you are looking for work. Be sure to also take advantage of LinkedIn and other online social networking sites.
Many jobs are posted online, and you can peruse listings to find companies hiring in your area. Be sure to restrict your search to legitimate job boards and don’t fall for scams where you have to pay anything up front or provide your personal financial information.

Many companies attend job fairs or industry events to try to find local professionals to hire. You can go to these events and talk with employers, or simply make connections to build up your professional network.
