Default relocating to Omaha - looking for work

Hi All,

I will be relocating to Omaha in two months and would like to know what the job market is like. Currently, I work in the financial services area in NY and make a nice salary.

I am curious to find out what I can expect when job hunting and what type of jobs are available in the financial sector.

Any help I can get would be great as I need to build up my networking circle.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Default Jobs

I've worked for Bank of the West during the last 2+ years, most recently as a Business Analyst. The bank is relatively new to the area but they have a pretty large presence in the area. I recommend that you check out the website for jobs. If you have questions, let me know.
